| WHAT THEY SAID
|| WHAT THEY MEANT
| It has long been known that...
|| I haven't bothered to look up the original reference, but...
| Of great theoretical and practical importance...
|| Interesting to me...
| While it has not been possible to provide definitive answers to these
|| The experiment didn't work out, but I figured I could at least get a
publication out of it.
| The operant conditioning technique was chosen to study the problem...
|| The guys in the next lab already had the equipment set up...
| Three of the data sets were chosen for detailed study...
|| The results of the others didn't make sense.
| Typical results are shown...
|| The best results are shown...
| Agreement with the predicted curve is excellent.
|| Agreement with the predicted curve is fair.
| Agreement with the predicted curve is good.
|| Agreement with the predicted curve is poor.
| Agreement with the predicted curve is satisfactory.
|| Agreement with the predicted curve is doubtful.
| Agreement with the predicted curve is fair.
|| Agreement with the predicted curve is imaginary.
| It is suggested that...
It is believed that...
It may be that...
| I think.
| It is generally believed that...
|| A couple of other guys think so too.
| It is clear that much additional work will be required before a complete
|| I don't understand it.
| Unfortunately, a quantitative theory to account for these results has
not been formulated.
|| I can't think of one and neither can anyone else.
| Correct within an order of magnitude.
| Thanks are due to Josephine Glotz for assistance with the experiments
and to John Doe for valuable discussion.
|| Glotz did the work and Doe explained what it meant.
