Mazuka, Reiko; Friedman, Ronald S.
Journal of East Asian Linguistics, v9 n4 p353-77 Oct 2000
Tested claims by Lucy (1992a, 1992b) that differences between the number marking systems used by Yucatec Maya and English lead speakers of these languages to differentially attend to either the material composition or the shape of objects. Replicated Lucy's critical objects' classification experiments using speakers of English and Japanese. (Author/VWL)
