Infant Learning of Ill-Defined Categories.
Husaim, John S.; Cohen, Leslie B.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v27 n4 p443-56 Oct 1981
The ability of preverbal infants to form and use ill-defined categories, to respond differentially to contrasting categories, and to use specific dimensions in learning these categories is examined in 20 infants 10 months of age. Results show that infants are not only capable of learning two ill-defined categories, but that they can do so with relative ease. (Author/MP)
