Word versus Sentence Interpretation: Do Adults Overextend the Meaning of "Different"? Princeton University Research Report No. 16.
Glucksberg, Sam
Contrary to earlier assertions, young children do not interpret the word "different" to mean "same." Both two-and-a-half year old children and adults interpret requests for same or different objects appropriately, apparently following conventions of conversational discourse. These data offer no support for a discrete semantic feature model of acquiring word meanings. (Author)
