Sizing Things Up: The Acquisition of the Meaning of Dimensional Adjectives
Bartlett, Elsa Jaffe
Journal of Child Language, 3, 2, 205-219, Jun 76
Two tasks were used to test predictions of the Semantic Feature Hypothesis (SFH) about children's comprehension of the meaning of spatial adjectives. Predictions about acquisition order for dimensional features were supported; predictions about polarity were not. An acquisition hypothesis is offered that is contrary to the SFH. (Author/RM)
