8.18 Dragging Triangles as a Generalized Operant

But this response also meets our definition of a generalized operant because not all of the responses will look the same. Given a similar context (a relational task and the clue), you could make this relational response to virtually any set of stimuli. The core features of mutual entailment, combinatorial entailment, and transformation of stimulus function will remain the same for each response. But the form of the response can vary considerably because different stimuli are being related.
