The Development of Semantic Components of Number.
Walker, Alice A.
In this paper the author reviews and synthesizes the research literature concerning the developmental relationships between conservation of number and linguistic capability in handling of quantitative and relational terms. Several models for the development of these competencies are discussed. On the basis of this review the author concludes that linguistic mastery of relational concepts and comparison generally coincides with the appearance of conservation, and therefore, that "the development of comparative language is an essential component of the development of number concepts."
