Infants' Association of Linguistic Labels with Causal Actions.
Casasola, Marianella; Cohen, Leslie B.
Developmental Psychology, v36 n2 p155-68 Mar 2000
Six experiments examined infants' ability to associate nonsense words with two causal actions: pushing and pulling. Eighteen-month-olds, but not 14-month-olds, formed word-action associations. Fourteen-month-olds discriminated a change in label but not a change in action when the other was held constant. When language labels were replaced with music, 14-month-olds responded in terms of and discriminated between pushing and pulling. (Author/KB)
