Waxman[edit]

Waxman's research focuses on early conceptual development, early linguistic development, and how they are related. She looks at how children develop a concept or mental image such as do, blue, or running and learn the word that describe them. While at Harvard she proposed that chldren have a built-in expectation that words used for an object refer to that object. Most studies had been done on older children. In a study of 12-month old infants done, she and Dana Markow demonstrated that the ability to develop concepts and the ability to learn words are available to children from the very start and that they are tightly linked together.[1]

At Northwestern Waxman is the director of the Project on Child Development.[2] The project provides a laboratory for studying children from newborn to six years old in a pleasant playroom setting.<FAQ> In further research she and colleagues studied younger and older children and children from different cultures. This research demonstrated that infants are also born with a built-in expectation that words will refer to what objects have in common. These expectations are fine-tuned by their experiences.[3]
