Martinez, Ivelisse M.; Shatz, Marilyn
Journal of Child Language, v23 n3 p529-45 Oct 1996
Tested preschool monolingual speakers of Spanish and English in their native countries on classification of familiar objects through a task assessing strategies in a free sort, a sort with instructions to use natural gender, and one for the Spanish speakers with instructions to use grammatical gender. Results suggest that instructional context and language-specific experience can influence classification. (28 references) (Author/CK)
