> (3) Syntactic rules are based on:
> a. What symbols mean
> b. what symbol sound like
> c. what symbols look like
> d. a and b
> e. ***b and c

  In my notes (which may or may not be right) under "The
Structure of Sentances" I've got that the symbol rules used
to structure symbols in a symbol system are syntactic rules.

But these symbols don't sound like anything, so I thought
the answer was just c.
> (6) "Would you mind getting off my foot?" is a
> a. ***directive
> b. proposition
> c. statement
> d. premise
> e. question

  I'm not anon. but I thought that the answer to question
was e. for the same reason.

I know that the sentance meaning is a question and speaker
meaning is a directive. It just seemed more natural to
interpret the written sentance as sentance (not speaker)

Hey! I knew this one and I got it right. But it's being
dropped - does that mean I lose my mark?

> (22) What is evidence that a child has a "theory of mind"?
> a. the child is afraid when you scowl
> b. the child remembers you were angry when you left the >
> c. the child tries to make you change your mind
> d. the child changes his mind
> e. ***none of the above
Could you please explain what IS evidence that a child has a
theory of mind?

> (27) Which of the following is NOT an example of >
declarative memory:
> a. ***short-term memory
> b. remembering the answer to this quiz question
> c. remembering when you learned the question's answer
> d. remembering what long-term memory is
> e. remembering what procedural memory is

I thought that it was c. because that was episodic memory.

I thought it would be alright to say that short-term memory
IS an example of declarative memory because all long-term
memory (declarative, episodic, procedural) must first be
short-term memory. (And therefore, short-term memory can
consist of all these types of memory).
