This publication reviews language behaviour within the better context of modelling or­ ganismic behaviour extra as a rule. It begins out from the elemental premise that what's attribute of organismic behaviour is that an organism makes use of its behavioural acts to complete anything in its interactions with the realm within which it reveals itself. those positive aspects, that an organism has a behav­ ioural repertoire and that it deploys particular behavioural acts from its repertoire in an intentional means, outline the agentive nature of an organism. The examine of organismic behaviour, then, needs to essentially situation itself with this agentive point of an organism and confirm what buildings and proces­ ses underlie those intentional organismic acts. we must always be capable of say what primitive constructions and what primitive approaches prepare in what methods can provide upward push to the types of behavioural acts an organism engages in. Any clarification of behaviour that we formulate when it comes to underlying constructions and methods has to be testable and needs to be consonant with the saw pheno­ menological points of such behaviour.

4 when discussing the dynamics of learning. 10 It would seem to be necessary to distinguish between knowledge and belief at a behavioural level. Not all available knowledge may be forthcoming in a given situation to base one's judgment on. The issues involved here are complex, and systematic studies are unavailable to assist behaviour modeling. Belief-structures that come into play in psychopathic conditions have been under study recently using the information processing approach [Colby, 1975].

One can explore with the eye or ear, as well as with hands or feet. Aspects of some environments can be described with facial expressions as well as with hand gestures. But, quite obviously, some modalities are much more appropriate for certain categories of behaviour than for others. 4 Additional Comments To proceed further with our attempt to develop a framework for discussing behaviour, we would have to specify what the characterizing features are of the acts which we have categorized as describing, manipulating, and exploring.

This gives rise to the object-language - metalanguage distinction. This also gives rise to the well-known semantic paradoxes of logic and the foundations of mathematics. Primitively, however, language behaviour is used only in the instrumental mode. That is, it is used to describe and manipulate the external, nonlinguistically given, world of objects and events. The central computational problem involved in modelling here is concerned with the methodology of mediation. How is one enabled to make use of language behaviour to talk about - to describe, command, and query - the world normally dealt with through the sensorimotor modalities?
