A Note on Imitation and Lexical Acquisition
Leonard, Laurence B.; Kaplan, Linda
Journal of Child Language, 3, 3, 449-455, Oct 76
A longitudinal study examining the role of imitation on children's lexical acquisition is discussed here. Findings did not support the view that imitation may enable new lexical items to be acquired, and it is noted that other functions of imitation in language acquisition should be explored. (CHK)
