Words have multidimensional meanings that can include what an object looks like, what an object can do, and what kinds of other objects are related. For example, a dog has a tail, barks, and is a pet. In my research, I am interested in understanding what kinds of information children know about words and how they come to learn these various aspects of meaning.
