Mervis, Carolyn B.; Bertrand, Jacquelyn
Child Development, v65 n6 p1646-62 Dec 1994
Examined the use by children of the Novel Name-Nameless Category principle, under the framework that lexical principles are acquired in a developmental sequence. Results indicated that the particular principle was not available at the start of lexical acquisition but that exhaustive categorization ability and a vocabulary spurt occur simultaneously with the appearance of advanced object permanence abilities.
