The Future of Infant Categorization Research: A Process-Oriented Approach.
Oakes, Lisa M.; Madole, Kelly L.
Child Development, v71 n1 p119-26 Jan-Feb 2000
Calls for a process-oriented approach to study of categorization in infancy. Maintains that further understanding of infant categorization and its changes with development requires a more direct assessment of infants' category formation. Argues that two research directions will enhance understanding of categorization: (1) contextual variations on infants' categorization; and (2) direct evaluation of the kinds of information used in forming categories.
