This article presents a dense database study of child language acquisition from a usage-based perspective and a new analysis of data from an earlier study on simulating language evolution. The new analysis is carried out to show how computer modeling studies can be designed to generate predictions (results) that can be compared quantitatively with empirical data obtained from the dense database studies. Although the comparison shows that the computer model in question is still far from… Expand
