Semantic Representation and Naming in Young Children.
McGregor, Karla K.; Friedman, Rena M.; Reilly, Renee M.; Newman, Robyn M.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v45 n2 p332-46 Apr 2002
Two experiments examined children's semantic representations and semantic naming errors. Results suggested that functional and physical properties are core aspects of object representations in the semantic lexicon and that the degree of semantic knowledge makes words more or less vulnerable to retrieval failure. Discussion focuses on the dynamic nature of semantic representations and its relation to naming. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
