How Much Does a Shared Name Make Things Similar? Part 1. Linguistic Labels and the Development of Similarity Judgment.
Sloutsky, Vladimir M.; Lo, Ya-Fen
Developmental Psychology, v35 n6 p1478-92 Nov 1999
Three experiments tested a model identifying object labels as discrete attributes of the object in which the relative weight of the label decreases with children's age. Results indicated that labels contribute to similarity judgment in a quantifiable manner, labels' weight decreased with age, and effects of labels were likely to stem from the cross-modality of labels.
