Cups and Glasses: Learning That Boundaries Are Vague
Andersen, Elaine S.
Journal of Child Language, 2, 1, 79-103, Apr 75
Children aged 3, 6, 9 and 12 years were asked to name and sort 25 different drinking vessels. Results showed three stages: (1) they ove rextend the term "cup"; (2) they focus only on certain perceptual properties; (3) they show growing awareness of functional properties and hence the vagueness of the boundary.
