Rapid 'automatized' naming of pictured objects, colors, letters and numbers by normal children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

180 normal children, ages 5 through 10 yr, were given a set of 9 naming tests, each involving 50 timed responses to 5 randomly recurring pictured objects, colors, letters or numbers. 'Automatization' of naming, measured by speed, accuracy, and consistency on these tasks, did not parallel the developmental order of acquisition of the various categories of names; letters and numbers were named relatively faster than were colors and objects as early as age 6 yr. Children's facility in 'automatization' of naming different semantic categories is considered in terms of the contributions of overlearning, stimulus discriminability, 'operativity', word frequency and response competition; only the last 2 appear to be explanatory factors.
