Symbol taxonomy in biophonology
We present phonological parallels to Gallistel & King’s (2009) discussion of symbols, variables and function in animal cognition in order to take up Poeppel’s (2012) challenge to cognitive scientists to formulate their models in general computational terms that can potentially be translated into the kind of representational and computational behaviors that we might plausibly find in a nervous system.
