The acquisition of even simple nouns requires rich conceptual, social, and linguistic capacities interacting in complex ways." "This book requires no background in psychology or linguistics. Topics include the effects of language on spatial reasoning, the origin of essentialist beliefs, and the young child's understanding of representational art. The book should appeal to general readers interested in language and cognition as well as to researchers in the field."--Jacket." ;
