On Learning "Less": Language and Cognitive Development
Holland, V. Melissa; Palermo, David S.
Child Development, 46, 2, 437-443, Jun 75
Two hypotheses concerning children's treatment of "less" as a synonym of "more" were tested with 4- and 5-year-olds. It was hypothesized: (1) that the "less"-"more" distinction can be taught; and (2) that conservation is dependent on the capacity to distinguish "more" and "less". (Author/CS)
