The Child's Acquisition of Spatial and Temporal Word Meanings
Friedman, William J.; Seely, Pamela B.
Child Development, 47, 4, 1103-1108, Dec 76
Two predictions based on H. Clark's and E. Clark's hypotheses of the acquisition of word meanings were tested: (1) when learning words which have both spatial and temporal meanings, children will understand the spatial meanings first, and (2) children understand the positive member of an antonym word pair before they understand the negative member.
