By Any Other Name: When Will Preschoolers Produce Several Labels for a Referent?
Deak, Gedeon O.; Yen, Loulee; Pettit, Jeremy
Journal of Child Language, v28 n3 p787-804 Oct 2001
Two experiments investigated why preschool children sometimes produce multiple words of a referent, but other times allow only on word. In the first experiment, 3- and 4-year-old children completed a naming task. Children produced on average more than two words per object. In the second, 3- and 4-year-olds learned new words for nameable objects. Children showed a correction effect, yet produced more than two words per object. (Author/VWL)
