Kanzi Language Comprehension with Novel Sentences

In this video, Susan Savage Rumbaugh with Kanzi experiments about achieving specific tasks with language commands and communication.

Here is the video link.

I further suggest Kanzi's Primal language : The Cultural Initiation of Primates into Language book written by Sue Savage Rumbaugh. This volume takes the reader behind the scenes of the recorded Kanzi linguistic communication examinations. It debates that whilst the examinations demonstrate that Kanzi has language, the even more extraordinary fashion in which he in the beginning adopted it - impromptu, in a culture common with humankind - calls for a re-thinking of language, stressing its fundamental cultural properties.

Susan Savage Rumbaugh's Kanzi Bonobo Book

If you didn't hear about Sue Savage Rumbaugh, Kanzi or Bonobos in general, I suggest you watching Bonobo Ted Video first.

In my previous article, I had reviews a very useful scientific book about bonobos. Now, I will continue my review with the book authored by the most famous ape and bonobo researcher Sue Savage Rumbaugh. The first part of the book is about the world's linguistically most talented bonobo, Kanzi and his long 18 years of language and ability learning journey. Second part is full of interesting statements about ape language learning process in a philosophical way. Third chapter is a discussion on the subject of whether apes really learn a language or not? Finally, last chapter opens the discussion for similarities between ape and human language learning. After reading this book, you will think twice if you are very assured of humans are chosen, divine and special creatures.

Best Bonobo Science Book

Many people are not even aware of these intelligent animals, Bonobos. Our latest known closest relatives. They are considered as an important key to understand evolution by many scientists. For example, Kanzi is one of those intelligent bonobos who can learn a language similar to humans do and communicate with lexigrams. They well remember those hundreds of symbols and are aware of them and answer correctly when asked or they need something. Well, how about this great ape playing Pac-Man with enough awareness. In this book, you will learn how and when bonobos were discovered. Their interesting peaceful society with lots of sexual action solely done for pleasure, not only to populate.

Authored by leading primatologist Frans de Waal, 200 pages of interesting Bonobo information with lots of full color photographs.

Kanzi Intelligent Ape Bonobo Video of TED

The following video is a perfect demonstration of endangered and closest relative to humans: bonobos and kanzi in particular which is the most talented and human-like animal up to date known. In a series of scientific experiment videos Kanzi bonobo will collect sticks, use a lighter to start a fire with it, he looks and learns the uses of fire without any sign of fear. He will then put off the fire with water with a regular English sentence. His sister bonobo will try driving a car. Not a bad effort in reality. A bonobo using scissors delicately to cut her baby's hair. When the baby tries to grab scissors, she hides it because she knows that it can be dangerous to the baby bonobo. Kanzi will sharpen a rock like our ancestors did the similar way to make tools. Playing music and enjoying it using both hands enthusiastically. Playing pac man obviously. Be sure to send these videos to your friends and they will think twice about the stereotype images of apes in their minds.

Please notice that he knows when to attack monsters when he can eat them. Bonobos can be taught very sensitive things like this which only humans can achieve.
