A Computer Model of Child Language Learning

Mallory Selfridge

A computer program modelling a child between the ages of 1 and 2 years is described. This program is based on observations of the knowledge this child had at age 1, the comprehension abilities he had at age 2, and the language experiences he had between these ages. The computer program described begins at the age 1 level, is given similar language experiences, and uses inference and learning rules to acquire comprehension at the age 2 level.
