    Cognition 93:147-55; discussion 157-65. 2004
    ..More generally, we suggest that a prominent form of the "argument from poverty of the stimulus" suffers from the same oversight, and is as a result logically unsound...

    Terry Regier
    Department of Psychology, University of Chicago, 5848 South University Avenue, Chicago, IL 60637, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:1436-41. 2007
    ..We formalize this idea, test it against color-naming data from a broad range of languages and show that it accounts for universal tendencies in color naming while also accommodating some observed cross-language variation...
  4. doi request reprint Kinship categories across languages reflect general communicative principles
    Charles Kemp
    Department of Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA
    Science 336:1049-54. 2012
    ..Because the principles of simplicity and informativeness are also relevant to other semantic domains, the trade-off between them may provide a domain-general foundation for variation in category systems across languages...

    Trends Cogn Sci 13:439-46. 2009
    ..To the extent that these findings generalize to other semantic domains they suggest a possible resolution of the debate over the Whorf hypothesis...

    Paul Kay
    International Computer Science Institute, University of California, Berkeley, USA
    Trends Cogn Sci 10:51-4. 2006
    ..Here, we review these developments, and suggest that they move the field beyond a familiar rhetoric of 'nature versus nurture', or 'universals versus relativity', to new concepts and new questions...
