Measuring the Vocabulary Spurt: A Reply to Mervis & Bertrand.
Goldfield, Beverly A.; Reznick, J. Steven
Journal of Child Language, v23 n1 p241-46 Feb 1996
Replies to a report on three toddlers who evidenced a late vocabulary spurt. The article argues that differences in assessing productive vocabulary and the questionable inference that size of the lexicon is a reliable indicator of the vocabulary spurt make it inappropriate to compare these children to previous studies directly measuring change in rate of word learning.
