Perceptual and Conceptual Processes in Infancy
It is suggested that we must distinguish 2 types of object categorization in infancy. One is perceptual categorization, which is an automatic part of perceptual processing that computes the

TLDR
The Genericity Constraint dictates that among all the models on the lattice that apply, the observer should choose the one in which the observed object is generic, which is simply the lowest in the partial order.
Objects, parts, and categories.
TLDR
Data is presented showing that the basic level differs qualitatively from other levels in taxonomies of objects and of living things and an explanation for why so many measures converge at that level is presented.
Objects, parts, and categories.
Concepts may be organized into taxonomies varying in inclusiveness or abstraction, such as furniture, table, card table or animal, bird, robin. For taxonomies of common objects and organisms, the

TLDR
It is argued that atypical subordinate categories are highly differentiated and should be responded to as fast as basic categories in object recognition, and the results supported this view and ruled out the hypothesis that objects are necessarily identified as members of basic categories before further identification.
Spontaneous Categorization of Natural Objects in Chimpanzees
TLDR
This chapter compares the ability of categorization between humans and chimpanzees, which are the closest relative to humans, and discusses the specialization of the categorization ability in humans.

TLDR
The basic level of abstraction in a taxonomy is the level at which categories carry the most information, possess the highest cue validity, and are, thus, the most differentiated from one another.
Parts in object concepts: Experiments with artificial categories
TLDR
The experiments revealed that basic-level structure could be found in categories that did not have parts in common, and suggested that parts are neither necessary nor sufficient to form a basic level.
A Natural Bias For the Basic Level ?
It is well established that people can categorize the same objects at different levels of abstraction (i.e., superordinate, basic, and subordinate). Of these, the basic level is known to have a

PERCEPTION AND PRODUCTION IN A VISUALLY BASED LANGUAGE *
TLDR
The status of sign language in terms of general visual symbolism and, in particular, the relationship between sign language and pantomime is reported and the way signs seem to be encoded and stored is reported, according to results of experiments in the short-term memory paradigm and evidence from slips of the hand.
The quantitative study of shape and pattern perception.
TLDR
The pre-eminent importance of formal or relational factors in perception has been abundantly demonstrated during some forty years of gestalt psychology, but it seems extraordinary that so little progress has been made toward the systematizing and quantifying of such factors.

TLDR
Any attempt to limit truth conditions for natural language sentences to true, false and "nonsense' will distort the natural language concepts by portraying them as having sharply defined rather than fuzzily defined boundaries.
