First paragraph: Ernst von Glasersfeld’s contributions to the LANA Project (the Language Analogue Project) were very important to its seven years of success, 1971–1977, during which the effort was led by the senior author of this paper… Indeed, his contributions have helped perpetuate research into the language skills of apes and sea mammals to this day. Ernst was a member of the original team of 1970 that formulated the proposal to the National Institutes of Health for four years’ funding to develop a computer-monitored keyboard-situation appropriate to research on the language skills of which the great apes might be capable.
Key words: animal communication, LANA project, language learning
