Eighteen-Month-Old Children Learn Words in Non-ostensive Contexts.
Tomasello, Michael; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v23 n1 p157-76 Feb 1996
Investigates whether children ages 1;6 just beginning to learn words can learn new words in a variety of nonostensive contexts. The results of two studies involving adults interacting with children in games of searching for objects suggest that from very early in language acquisition, children learn words through active attempts to understand adult behavior.
