Vocal and Gestural Symbols at 13 Months.
Bates, Elizabeth; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v26 n4 p407-23 Oct 1980
Studies infants' symbolic gestures in and out of context with objects varying in degree of perceptual/contextual support. Results indicate vocabulary production correlates with symbolic gesture out of context and that vocabulary comprehension correlates with symbolic gesture in context. Gestures that bear the strongest relationship to language are those with minimal support from the referent object. (Author/RH)
