2.1 Classification of Stimuli and Responses

Before beginning the classification of elementary verbal relationships, you must master several concepts that are used in the definitions of those relationships. The concepts concern the classification of stimuli and responses as either verbal or non-verbal and also several types of relationships between stimuli and responses. Another type of controlling variable, one that is unique to one category of verbal relationships, will also be presented.
