  1. THE MENTAL LEXICON IN LANGUAGE ACQUISITION
    HOLLY STORKEL; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..The findings to emerge hold potential for theories of word learning and the relationship between perception and production in language acquisition. ..
  2. Word Learning in Children: Normal Development and Language Impairment
