#13 - Thinking conceptually required for language

#13 - Thinking conceptually required for language
« on: December 11, 2005, 05:56:28 PM »
I remember a question about babbling infants and language, and some of the answer choices were:
-something about motor skills necessary to make languages sounds
-thinking conceptually

Was the babbling infants Q the same one as #13 on the master list?

The reason I ask is that I am positive that it appeared in my experimental section (#3).

Yeah, I remember this one

two of the answer choices were

a) all humans are capable of conceptual thought

b) no conceptual thought is required for the kind of thinking that animals do

or something like that.

The question itself had to do with the fact taht animals use language but that humans use language that requires conceptual thought.

also i know this is off topic of this thread but does anyone remember a principle question about trying to find out information even if knowing that info could be a bad thing

Haha. By 'C' do you mean not one of the answers I quoted? I dont remember which letter it was. I think I answered the second choice I wrote, but that was my most dubious answer of all the LRs on the test.

And yes, there was a question about not knowing info that would be bad. I cant remember the choices though.

Is the one you refer to about informaation about sciences? It is the post mortem. Scientists develop something that has unforeseen circumstances, etc.

haah by c i meant the letter..i had almost no time for this question and its among my most dubious also

umm one of the answer choices was about a patient finding out his diagnosis even if it was an unfavorable diagnosis

does that sound famliar

no that was a separate question, the one about the invention
