Innateness, abstract names, and syntactic cues in How Children Learn the Meanings of Words

  • Heidi Harley (a1) and Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini (a2)
Abstract

Bloom masterfully captures the state-of-the-art in the study of lexical acquisition. He also exposes the extent of our ignorance about the learning of names for non-observables. HCLMW adopts an innatist position without adopting modularity of mind; however, it seems likely that modularity is needed to bridge the gap between object names and the rest of the lexicon.
