The Influence of Functional Context on Children's Labeling Responses.
Prawat, Richard S.; Wildfong, Susan
Child Development, v51 n4 p1057-60 Dec 1980
Younger and older children were asked to label pictures of nonprototypic, container-like objects in an effort to test Nelson's theory regarding the primacy of the functional core in young children's meaning structures. Contrary to expectations, the older, intermediate age children were influenced more by functional context than were the younger, preschool children. (Author/RH)
