Peter et al interested in externalization/internalization.

I have the D&A article which you referred to, Peter, and I will get it
pdf'ed next week and posted for discussion.

Turns out I wrote a little intro and noted, in part,

"Davydov consistently rejects the notion that to be able to talk about a
concept of to fulfill it under a restricted set of circumstances is sufficient
to indicate that it has been thoroughly internalized; rather, the
individual must demonstrate an ability to carry out the requisite operations
in a variet of appropriate circumstances.

   An especially interesting point .. is the evidence that certain modalities
(gestures for example) may inherently be particularly bound to certain
stimulus configurations, thus reducing the generalizability of the associated
cognitive operations....."

The gestures Davydov is talking about are quite different than the ones
in the Amelia, GP example. Plenty of interesting food for thought.
