Perception of the ordinal position of a sequence element is critical to many cognitive and motor functions. Here, the prediction that this ability is based on a domain-general perceptual mechanism and, thus, that it emerges prior to the emergence of language was tested. Infants were habituated with sequences of moving/sounding objects and then tested for the ability to perceive the invariant ordinal position of a single element (as depicted in the accompanying figure for Experiment 1) or the invariant relative ordinal position of two adjacent elements (Experiment 2, not shown here).
