Washoe learned approximately 350 signs of ASL.
She also taught her adopted son Loulis some signs. Washoe was born in West Africa in 1965. She was captured for use by the US Air Force for research for the space program. Washoe was named after Washoe County, Nevada, where she was raised and taught to use ASL. In 1967, Allen and Beatrix Gardner established a project to teach Washoe ASL at the University of Nevada, Reno.
When Washoe was five, the Gardners decided to move on to other projects, and she was moved to the University of Oklahoma’s Institute of Primate Studies in Norman, Oklahoma, under the care of the Foutses. Washoe was raised in an environment as close as possible to that of a human child, in an attempt to satisfy her psychological need for companionship. While with Washoe, the Gardners and Fouts were careful to communicate only in ASL with Washoe, rather than using vocal communication, on the assumption that this would create a less confusing learning environment for Washoe. This technique is commonly used when teaching human children how to sign. After the first couple of years of the language project, the Gardners and Roger Fouts discovered that Washoe could pick up ASL gestures without direct instruction, but instead by observing humans around her who were signing amongst themselves. For example, the scientists signed “Toothbrush” to each other while they brushed their teeth near her.
Washoe learned approximately 350 words of sign languages. For researchers to consider that Washoe had learned a sign, she had to use it spontaneously and appropriately for 14 consecutive days. These signs were then further tested using a double-blind vocabulary test. For instance, when Washoe’s mate Moja didn’t know the word for “thermos”, Moja referred to it as a “METAL CUP DRINK”.
One of Washoe’s caretakers was pregnant and missed work for many weeks after she miscarried. People who should be there for her and aren’t are often given the cold shoulder–her way of informing them that she’s miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing “MY BABY DIED”. Washoe stared at her, then looked down. Washoe herself lost two children: one baby died shortly after birth of a heart defect, the other baby, Sequoyah, died of a staph infection at two months of age.
