Litowitz, Bonnie E.; Novy, Forrest A.
Journal of Child Language, v11 n1 p159-78 Feb 1984
Investigates expression of part-whole semantic relation by children 3 to 12 years old and indicates that older children prefer its use significantly more often. The part-whole semantic relation was also observed to take several linguistic forms, such as partitive, spatial, and possessive. Age, experimental task format, or type of experimental stimuli strongly influenced the selection of these forms. (SL)
