Beyond Fast Mapping: Young Children's Extensions of Novel Words and Novel Facts.
Behrend, Douglas A.; Scofield, Jason; Kleinknecht, Erica E.
Developmental Psychology, v37 n5 p698-705 Sep 2001
Examined in 2 studies 2- to 4-year-olds' learning of novel words and novel facts and extension of the words and facts to additional exemplars. Found that children extended the novel word to more category members than they extended the novel fact. By age 2, children observe extendibility of novel count nouns but are uncertain about extendibility of arbitrary facts. (Author/KB)
