Cognition and the Verb Lexicon in Early Lexical Development.
Smith, Cheryl A.; Sachs, Jacqueline
Applied Psycholinguistics, v11 n4 p409-24 Dec 1990
Twenty-four 12- to 19-month-old children were studied to examine the cognitive basis for the emergence of verbs. Substantial increases in verb comprehension across contexts, abstract cognition, and the ability to engage in symbolic action were observed, suggesting a relationship between underlying cognitive development and increased verb comprehension.
