Two-Year-Olds Learn Novel Nouns, Verbs, and Conventional Actions from Massed or Distributed Exposures.
Childers, Jane B.; Tomasello, Michael
Developmental Psychology, v38 n6 p967-78 Nov 2002
Examined 2-year-olds' comprehension and production of novel nouns, verbs, or actions at 3 intervals after training conducted in massed or distributed exposures. Found that for comprehension, children learned all item types in all training conditions at all retention intervals. Production was better for nonverbal actions than for either word type and following distributed versus massed exposure. Children produced more new nouns than verbs. Retention interval did not affect production. (Author/KB)
