Acquisition of the Novel Name-Nameless Category (N3C) Principle by Young Children Who Have Down Syndrome.
Mervis, Carolyn B.; Bertrand, Jacquelyn
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v100 n3 p231-43 Nov 1995
Acquisition of the novel name-nameless category (N3C) principle by 22 toddlers with Down syndrome was studied. Results indicated that the ability to fast map a new word to a category is not available at the start of lexical acquisition. Children who used the N3C principle had larger productive vocabularies than others and had begun to acquire new words rapidly. (Author/SW)
