Linguistic Influences on Children's Number Concepts: Methodological and Theoretical Considerations.
Towse, John N.; Saxton, Matthew
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v66 n3 p362-75 Sep 1997
Examined role of linguistic demarcation of numerals on cognitive representations of numbers with Caucasian children, 5-7 years old. Theorized that the linguistic paradigm does not always support the idea that language affects number concepts and that children's performance is shaped by other constraints. Results suggest that the task reflects children's interpretations and misinterpretations of task demands. (JPB)
