ABA 665 Verbal Behavior

This is a 3-credit graduate level course designed to review the literature relevant to the understanding of verbal behavior. By the end of this course students will demonstrate the basis for a functional analysis of human language. This will include establishing a familiarity with elementary verbal operants, the ways in which verbal behavior is established, the relevance of the behavior of the listener, and ways that verbal behavior becomes organized. Students will establish vocal verbal behavior with regard to the topics addressed. Students will define and distinguish among the elementary verbal operants. Students will design a lesson plan and a research idea related to one verbal operant.
