The Role of Language in Acquiring Object Kind Concepts in Infancy.
Xu, Fei
Cognition, v85 n3 p223-50 Oct 2002
Four experiments investigated whether 9-month-olds could use the presence of labels to help them establish a representation of two distinct objects in a complex object individuation task. Found that the presence of two distinct labels facilitated object individuation, but presence of one label for both objects, two distinct tones, two distinct sounds, or two distinct emotional expressions did not.
