Inferences and Semantic Development
Harris, Paul
Journal of Child Language, 2, 1, 143-152, Apr 75
Three experiments with children between 5 and 7 years are described. It is shown that nominal predication of an unknown word by a superordinate term enables young children to make appropriate inferences concerning its attributes. The results are discussed in relation to semantic development and reasoning in the young child. (Author/RM)
