She therefore says, ‘Can you turn back around’: Kanzi immediately turns towards the table and awaits the next task. It happens so naturally that one scarcely notices it. This incident allows us to glimpse Kanzi’s and Sue’s more familiar relation at home. Kanzi is not a laboratory animal who was specifically trained by an experimenter to hand over photos in response to hearing ‘keys’, ‘Panbanisha’ or ‘mushrooms’ being pronounced in a standardized fashion. 28 When Sue, during the test, says, ‘Can you turn back around,’ as an adult can instruct a child when they visit the doctor, her speech and Kanzi’s response are not properly part of the formal test.
His situation was analogous to that of a human child. ’ It’s unclear what ‘taking a break from language’ could mean in the case of a child who is becoming a speaker for the first time. ‘Taking a break’ has clear meaning when older children study foreign languages. But then they already have become speakers in more boundless ways. Metaphysical attitudes to what is human and nonhuman affect apes in psychological research. If you idealize vocabulary and grammar as the first mental cause of speech, as the primary mental difference that makes humans rather than animals into speakers, then if you want to see if an ape can learn to speak, you will begin by trying to place this assumed mental architecture in the ape’s head as the beginning of its future speech.
For it is clear, I take it,13 that it is in connection with human beings telling each other things, asking questions, saying ‘Hello’, and so on, that a child first grasps the range of notions that we may cover with the umbrella terms ‘speech’ and ‘language’. It might, then, seem clear that there is something to be said for the claim that: to think of some beings as having ‘language’ is to think of them as interacting with each other in ways importantly analogous to those in which we (human beings) interact with each other in speech.
