Developmental Word Knowledge: A Linguistic and Cognitive Perspective.
Templeton, W. Shane
This paper reviews recent theoretical developments and empirical findings in the area of the development of word knowledge in children. Advances in both linguistic and cognitive theory are described and synthesized, and children's word knowledge at various stages of development is outlined. The point is made that asking meaningful questions about how children deal with words in various phases of reading instruction depends upon first asking meaningful questions about what children think words are.
