A multiplicity of constraints: How children learn word meaning

  • Chris Westbury (a1) and Elena Nicoladis (a1)
Abstract

This book is an excellent and accessible overview of the position that children learn the meanings of words by applying a variety of nonlinguistic cognitive tools to the problem. We take issue with Bloom's emphasis on Theory of Mind as an explanatory mechanism for language learning; and with his claim that only unitary objects are nameable.
