Linguistic and Cognitive Abilities in Infancy: When Does Language Become a Tool for Categorization?
Nazzi, Thierry; Gopnik, Alison
Cognition, v80 n3 pB11-B20 Jul 2001
Evaluated infants' ability to form new object categories based on either visual or naming information at 16 and 20 months using an object manipulation task. Found that infants at both ages showed evidence of using visual information to categorize the objects. Only 20-month-olds used naming information. Found a correlation between vocabulary size and name-based categorization among the 20-month-olds. (Author/KB)
