Research in this area addresses a number of questions such as:
- When are early words produced and understood
- Are infants aware of the connections between words like 'cat' and 'dog'?
- When do children know about the sounds that make up the words they know?
- When do children use the order of words in a sentence in learning the meanings of new words?
- How do infants form categories?
- What information do children use to identify visual objects? Do they process objects in a different way when the object looked at is named?
