Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: How ‘knowing less’ can boost language development in children

Children may learn new words better when they learn them in the context of other words they are just learning -- according to new research from the University of East Anglia. Researchers investigated how 18- to 24-month-olds learn new words -- in the context of words they already know well and those they don't. The findings help explain how children learn new words and suggest a new way that parents and carers could help boost language development.
