Developmental and Stylistic Variation in the Composition of Early Vocabulary.
Bates, Elizabeth; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v21 n1 p85-123 Feb 1994
Provides evidence for developmental changes in the composition of the lexicon, reflecting a shift in emphasis from reference, to predication, to grammar. Findings show that the study of qualitative variation in lexical style is confounded by quantitative variation in rate of lexical development. Tables are appended. (Contains 42 references.) (JP)
