Cognitive Components of Naming in Children: Effects of Referential Uncertainty and Stimulus Realism.
Johnson, Carla J.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v53 n1 p24-44 Feb 1992
Picture naming in children was assessed as a function of two stimulus characteristics: the number of correct names for a picture and the degree to which a picture realistically represents the object. Two experiments showed that children named low-uncertainty objects faster than high-uncertainty objects with multiple correct names. Contains 50 references. (Author/LB)
