Abstract

The vocalizations of eleven hand-rearedCallithrix jacchus have been sonagraphically analyzed and according to morphactical criteria compiled into a classification of eleven call-categories. These call-categories, however, are not discretely separable from each other because there exists a large variability within the groups as well as there are different types of continuous and summative transitions between them. Therefore it appears to be impossible to correlate particular tonal patterns exclusively with specific contexts or functions. It is suggested that the basic characteristics of all these eleven call-categories are initially included within the extremely variable group of “short phii-calls” (call-category 01).
