UC Merced Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society Title The facilitatory role of sound symbolism in infant word learning Publication Date The facilitatory role of sound symbolism in infant word learning

Michiko Miyazaki, Shohei Hidaka, Imai, Mutsumi, Michiko Miyazaki
2013 Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society   unpublished
Acknowledgments We would like to thank Janet Werker for insightful discussion and advice in designing the experiment.  ...  Discussion The present study aimed to clarify the facilitating role of sound symbolism in novel word learning in 14-month-old infants.  ...  Previous research has shown that sound symbolic words play facilitative role for preschool children's novel word learning, helping children identify what aspects of the world should be mapped to verbs  ...

Iconicity in Word Learning and Beyond: A Critical Review

Alan Ks Nielsen, Mark Dingemanse
2020 Language and Speech  
Interest in iconicity (the resemblance-based mapping between aspects of form and meaning) is in the midst of a resurgence, and a prominent focus in the field has been the possible role of iconicity in  ...  We suggest a number of productive avenues for future research and specify what types of evidence would be required to show a role for iconicity in general learning enhancement.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Steve Levinson and all our colleagues in the Language Evolution in Interaction project at the MPI for Psycholinguistics.  ...

Affective Congruence between Sound and Meaning of Words Facilitates Semantic Decision

Arash Aryani, Arthur Jacobs
2018 Behavioral Sciences  
Thus, it remains largely unknown whether the beneficial role of iconicity in making semantic decisions can be considered a general feature in spoken language applying also to "ordinary" words in the lexicon  ...  By capitalizing on the affective domain, and in particular arousal, we organized words in two distinctive groups of iconic vs. non-iconic based on the congruence vs. incongruence of their lexical (meaning  ...  Rather, language users would access the meaning of words solely through learned, and per se, arbitrary links between linguistic symbols and their cognitive representations.  ...

Language as a multimodal phenomenon: implications for language learning, processing and evolution

G. Vigliocco, P. Perniss, D. Vinson
2014 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
We thank three reviewers for helpful comments on an earlier version of this introduction.  ...  The role of iconicity in word learning is explored in more depth in the contribution by Imai & Kita [56] .  ...  According to the 'sound -symbolism bootstrapping hypothesis', sound symbolism would help the child understand that perceived sounds refer to things in the world and would help them zero in on specific  ...

Are Words Easier to Learn From Infant- Than Adult-Directed Speech? A Quantitative Corpus-Based Investigation

Adriana Guevara-Rukoz, Alejandrina Cristia, Bogdan Ludusan, Roland Thiollière, Andrew Martin, Reiko Mazuka, Emmanuel Dupoux
2018 Cognitive Science  
We investigate whether infant-directed speech (IDS) could facilitate word form learning when compared to adult-directed speech (ADS).  ...  We discuss the implication of these findings for the view that the functional role of IDS is to improve language learnability.  ...  MacDonnell Foundation, the Fondation de France, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (Kakenhi Grant 24520446, to A.

Temporal, Environmental, and Social Constraints of Word-Referent Learning in Young Infants: A Neurorobotic Model of Multimodal Habituation

Richard Veale, Paul Schermerhorn, Matthias Scheutz
2011 IEEE Transactions on Autonomous Mental Development  
In this paper, we present a neuroanatomically-based embodied computational model of multimodal habituation to explore the temporal and social constraints on the learning observed in very young infants.  ...  In particular, the model is able to explain empirical results showing that auditory word stimuli must be presented synchronously with visual stimulus movement for the two to be associated.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to extend special thanks to Xuan Wu for his help in preparing the experiments and in the data analysis.  ...

Construals of iconicity: experimental approaches to form–meaning resemblances in language

MARK DINGEMANSE, MARCUS PERLMAN, PAMELA PERNISS
2020 Language and Cognition  
We contextualise the work by introducing a typology of approaches to iconicity in language.  ...  While speculations on form–meaning resemblances in language go back millennia, the experimental study of iconicity is only about a century old.  ...  While much work in this domain has focused on the learning advantages of iconic words, Laing shows that onomatopoeia -defined as forms that imitate sounds from the environment -play facilitatory roles  ...

Glyph guessing for 'oo' and 'ee': spatial frequency information in sound symbolic matching for ancient and unfamiliar scripts

Nora Turoman, Suzy J. Styles
2017 Royal Society Open Science  
The authors thank Shang Nan and Gerrit Maus for their helpful suggestions about measurement of spatial frequency spectra in Matlab.  ...  Preliminary data from this project were presented at the Si15 conference on Sound and Interactivity, Singapore, June 2015, with summary data reported in the Proceedings [85] .  ...  This alliance between letter shape and sound has led some to suggest that effects of linguistic sound symbolism previously observed in European studies may be driven by the shapes of written word forms  ...

ABSTRACT

2008 Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development  
We also extend gratitude to Jessica Cicchino, Jaime Derringer, Rachel Wu, and the members of the Infant Cognition Laboratory for help in conducting the experiments, and to the participants in our studies  ...  We thank David Plaut who provided useful input in the development of the simulations.  ...  In other words, once infants learn that "dog" refers to the category of dogs and "cats" refers to the category of cats, they develop the assumption that a novel word also refers to a category of things  ...

Some Behavioral and Neurobiological Constraints on Theories of Audiovisual Speech Integration: A Review and Suggestions for New Directions

Nicholas Altieri, David B. Pisoni, James T. Townsend

The latter two accounts assume that the representations of audiovisual speech perception are based on abstract gestures, while the former two assume that the representations consist of symbolic or featural  ...  Summerfield (1987) proposed several accounts of audiovisual speech perception, a field of research that has burgeoned in recent years.  ...  Teinonen et al. (2008) found that only infants in the two-category condition exhibited phonetic category learning.  ...
