(2884) What are we learning from teaching? Byrne RW and Rapaport LG. 2011. Animal Behaviour, volume 82, pages 1207-1211. With reference to attribution of mental states to others, the authors state, on page 1208: "Caro & Hauser's (1992) article launched the modern field of animal teaching. None the less, we believe that the ensuing single-minded attention to the functional definition, to the virtual exclusion of the cognitive processes that drive the behaviours, now may be hindering our understanding of the phenomenon.". This attribution of "single-minded attention" is unsupported by any evidence. What is needed is a comparative count of citations in the modern field of animal teaching before and after the publication of Caro and Hauser's (1992) article, and then a study of each citation to attempt disproof of "single-minded attention" and "the virtual exclusion of the cognitive processes that drive the behaviours" in the mental states of the authors of those citations.
(2885) How brains are built: genetics and evolution. Vallender EJ. 2013. Brain, Behavior and Evolution, volume 81, pages 71-73.
With reference to a plural noun with a singular verb, the author states in the penultimate paragraph: "Changes in the brain during evolution are particularly interesting because of the cognitive and behavioral phenotypes with which it presumably correlates but whose evolution is difficult to discern.".
With reference to personification and euphemism, the author states four paragraphs before the end: "Intraspecific studies are much more agnostic to functional category.".
With reference to hyperbole, the author states in the third paragraph: "These discussions, including arguments for and against, have been litigated and relitigated...".

(2889) Deep homology and the origins of evolutionary novelty. Shubin N, Tabin C and Carroll S. 2009. Nature, volume 457, pages 818-823.
With reference to hyperbole, "rampant convergent evolution" on page 820 is attributed to innominate others, and follows a paragraph that is highly contrived by hyphenation, while "magnum opus" in reference 2 is part of a sentence that does not make sense.
With reference to anthropomorphism, it is the authors who conspire to promote their concept of deep homology, as evidenced by failure to attempt disproof of that concept. What is the probability of c-opsin and r-opsin being expressed in the same organism by chance? Does the occurrence of both c-opsin and r-opsin in polychaete annelids not have to be measured against the total number of organisms in which they do not occur together?
With reference to hyphenation, twenty-one lines on page 820 include "vertebrate-type eyes", "camera-type eyes", "a camera-type eye 'program'", and "a ciliary-type camera-style eye".
With reference to metaphor, do "the ordinate axes of structures" in the final paragraph make the authors' ideas more accessible or less accessible?
With reference to familiarity, in a text of thirty-eight references to other authors, these authors use the first names of only two of those authors, Charles Darwin and Armin Moczek. Is this indicative of some deep homology?
