Abstract
In this paper, we perform a thought experiment. We wish to know how people's communicative behavior is likely to change due to changes in the surroundings. We create three linkages in which the communicative behavior of one participant is held constant (with some slight exceptions mentioned below) while the communicative behavior of the second participant is allowed to vary according to the changes in the environment. In accordance with the strictures of Hard Science Linguistics (HSL) Yngve 1996, the models created here will all be testable in the real world, although we have not conducted the tests.
