How Children Use Input To Acquire a Lexicon.
Hoff, Erika; Naigles, Letitia
Child Development, v73 n2 p418-33 Mar-Apr 2002
Examined relation of social-pragmatic and data- providing features of input to productive vocabulary of 63 two-year-olds. Found benefits of data provided in mother- child conversation, but no effects of social aspects of those conversations. Properties that benefited lexical development were quantity, lexical richness, and syntactic complexity. Proposed integrated account of role of social and computational processes to lexical development. (Author/KB)
