Calculating Probabilities Simplifies Word Learning

Abstract

Children can use the statistical regularities of their environment to learn word meanings, a mechanism known as crosssituational learning. We take a computational approach to investigate how the information present during each observation in a cross-situational framework can affect the overall acquisition of word meanings. We do so by formulating various in… (More)
