Infants' Learning about Words and Sounds in Relation to Objects.
Woodward, Amanda L.; Hoyne, Karen L.
Child Development, v70 n1 p65-77 Jan-Feb 1999
Two studies examined whether 1-year olds' name learning during joint attention was guided by expectation that names will be in the form of spoken words. Results showed that 13-month olds, but not 20-month olds, learned a new sound/object correspondence, as evidenced by their choosing targets reliably in responses to hearing the word or sound on test trials, but not control trials.
