A Cross-Linguistic Examination of the Noun-Category Bias: Its Existence and Specificity in French- and Spanish-Speaking Preschool-Aged Children.
Waxman, Sandra R.; And Others
Cognitive Psychology, v32 n3 p183-218 Apr 1997
Whether preschoolers extend count nouns to other members of the same noun category was studied with 87 French- and 45 Spanish-speaking children. Results suggest that mapping between count nouns and object categories may be a universal phenomenon, although mappings between adjectives and associated applications vary among languages. (SLD)
