Skinner?s Verbal Behavior
Volume 8 Num. 3 - October 2008 - Pages 287-294
The author reviews the book that B. F. Skinner considered to be his most important work,
namely Verbal Behavior in terms of its content and effect on the field. He considers such
elements as the paucity of experiments, the host of allusions to literature and the masterful
behavior analysis directed at elucidating verbal behavior, the latter constituting an admirable
example of how behavior analysis can be applied to other forms of behavior as well.
Skinner, verbal behavior, conditioning of verbal behavior, tact, mand, autoclitic, Chomsky.
