Description: This is a repository for data and analyses from a series of three experiments on semantic development. In these experiments, we measured the strength of links between concepts in children (4ya) and adults. We focused on measuring links between concepts whose labels co-occur (e.g., baby-bottle) and links between concepts belonging to the same taxonomic category (e.g., table-bed). Across experiments using different paradigms, we observed strong co-occurrence links in children that were supplemented by taxonomic links with age.
