Context Effects on Lexical Specificity in Maternal and Child Discourse.
Lucariello, Joan; Nelson, Katherine
Journal of Child Language, v13 n3 p507-22 Oct 1986
Observation of mothers and their two-year-olds (N=10) in routine, free play, and novel discourse settings suggested that object labelling was more varied in natural than in experimental settings. Basic level tokens were less prevalent and subordinate level term usage was more common in the routine and novel contexts. (Author/CB)
