Language Acquisition and Cognitive Development.
Olson, David R.
This paper analytically reviews the literature on cognitive development, particularly as it relates to the acquisition of language. Of primary concern are the basic cognitive processes of perceptual groupings, concepts and relations, and memory. Discussed are the acquisition of language, some aspects of the nature of language and language development. Another section deals with cognitive development, which is divided into discussions of perception and perceptual schemata and concepts and conceptual systems. A final section on language and thought summarizes and concludes the document. Extensive references are included. (WY)
