ABSTRACT
In this study, we examined the meaning acquisition of 12 words in early language acquisition stage using longitudinal data. Data were collected as diary entries in addition to recording once a week from the age of 12 to 28 months(1;0 - 2;4 years) at the child’s home with the mother. First, we noticed that the Korean children were also extending the word beyond the adult word concept. Second, early acquisition of words in our data reflected the structure of the syntactic category as nouns and verbs. These results suggest that the verbs were gained within action script or event-based knowledge. In addition, the produced words were categorized by the situational expressions and the taxonomic expressions. Based on the finding of this study, we attempted to discuss the role of normal developmental milestones in early language intervention for children with language disorder.
