Over-extension in first language acquisition: a case study in semantic development

Abstract [en]
This investigation sets out to examine how common the phenomenon of over-extension is in child language. It also looks into why over-extensions are used and what items the child most often use as its prototype reference. The investigation is a case study of the authors 2-years old son, and the data is collected both in the form of diary-notes and on tape recordings. The taxonomy of previous researcher Ester Dromi is used as the basis for exhibiting the findings. The types of over-extension used in the taxonomy are classic over-extension, complexive over-extension, extension to one irrelevant referent only and unclassified extension. To them were added imagination and pronunciation. Due to the fact that was a short-termed research the data is not very extensive. However, there are several ways of expanding the study, for example by making it a long-term study or by adding more study subjects to it.
