A Little Goes a Long Way: Evidence for a Perceptual Basis of Learning for the Noun Categories Count and Mass.
McPherson, Leslie Maggie Perrin
Journal of Child Language, v18 n2 p315-38 Jun 1991
Various theories of learning for the categories "count noun" and "mass noun" are compared. It is argued that children assign words to these categories on the basis of intuitions arising from perception that are relevant to Macnamara's (1986) definitions of the categories. (39 references) (GLR)
