Summary
"Equipped with new methodologies, we are finally beginning to amass the empirical research that has allowed us to develop a theoretical understanding of early verb learning. As a result, we are now in a position to build on the 1995 Tomasello and Merriman book Beyond Names for Things by examining how far the study of verb learning has advanced during the last decade. Action Meets Word does just that by bringing together the latest research on the universal foundations of verb learning. This cutting-edge volume on the development of a crucial aspect of language will be an invaluable resource for all language researchers, from developmental and cognitive psychologists, to speech/language pathologists, to philosophers and linguists."--BOOK JACKET
