Children Use Syntax to Learn Verb Meanings.
Naigles, Letitia
Journal of Child Language, v17 n2 p357-74 Jun 1990
Provides an experimental validation of Landau and Gleitman's (1985) syntactic bootstrapping procedure on how children may use syntactic information to learn new verbs. The children's choice of the correct referent for a given verb versus a nonsense verb in two syntactic structures is explained. (37 references) (GLR)
