Dimensional Adjectives: Factors Affecting Children's Ability To Compare Objects Using Novel Words.
Ryalls, Brigette Oliver
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n1 p26-49 May 2000
Three studies tested the hypothesis that children's difficulty acquiring dimensional adjectives, such as big and little, is a consequence of how these words are used by adults. Findings indicated that children easily acquired novel dimension words when such words were used in a strictly comparative fashion, but had difficulty when also exposed to the categorical form of usage.
