Contrast: A Semantic Constraint?
Gathercole, Virginia C.
Journal of Child Language, v16 n3 p685-702 Oct 1989

An alternative is offered that draws on the drive towards the adult system, development of nonlinguistic concepts, acquisition of language in context, and use of a cooperative principle in conversational exchanges.
