The Effect of "Missing" Information on Children's Retention of Fast-Mapped Labels.
Wilkinson, Krista M.; Mazzitelli, Kim
Journal of Child Language, v30 n1 p47-73 Feb 2003

An adaptation of a receptive word matching task examined how well children retained just-mapped relation between word and referent when some information was later missing. (Author/VWL)
