Examined the degree of specificity encoded in early lexical representations by presenting 18- to 23-month-olds with object labels either correctly or incorrectly pronounced and analyzing children's eye movement. Found that children recognized the spoken words in both conditions but recognition was poorer when words were mispronounced, with effects unrelated to age or to spoken vocabulary size. (Author/KB)
