Words from two distinct content domains were used in a variant of the referential communication task. Undergraduates who were collinear in one content domain were found to communicate more effectively within that domain than those who were not collinear. Collinearity in one domain had no effect on communication accuracy in the other. (Author/RH)

Tronick, Ed; Beeghly, Marjorie – American Psychologist, 2011
We argue that infant meaning-making processes are a central mechanism governing both typical and pathological outcomes. Infants, as open dynamic systems, must constantly garner information to increase their complexity and coherence. They fulfill this demand by making nonverbal "meaning"--affects, movements, representations--about themselves in…
