Six match-to-sample picture/object selection experiments explored 3- to 5-year-olds' knowledge about superordinate words and acquisition of this knowledge. Findings indicated that number of standards (one versus two), types of standards (different versus same basic-level categories), and nature of representation (pictures versus objects) influenced learning and extension of superordinate words. Age differences were found in pattern of superordinate word acquisition. (Author/KB)
