Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

His primary scientific interests are in Vocabulary, Cognitive psychology, Connectionism, Language development and Cognitive science. His Vocabulary study is focused on Linguistics in general. His study in Cognitive psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Visual perception, Perception, Language acquisition, Verbal learning and Word.

His Connectionism research is within the category of Artificial intelligence. His Language development research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pronunciation, Word recognition, Lexico and Phonology. His research integrates issues of Cognitive development, Neuroconstructivism, Developmental neurobiology, Generalization and Concept learning in his study of Cognitive science.

His most cited work include:

  • Rethinking Innateness: A Connectionist Perspective on Development (1765 citations)
  • U-shaped learning and frequency effects in a multi-layered perception: Implications for child language acquisition (524 citations)
  • From rote learning to system building: acquiring verb morphology in children and connectionist nets (461 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Linguistics, Language acquisition, Connectionism and Developmental psychology. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Communication, Experimental psychology, Cognition, Categorization and Novelty. Kim Plunkett interconnects Visual perception, Vocabulary development and Verb in the investigation of issues within Language acquisition.

His Connectionism study incorporates themes from Cognitive science, Past tense and Natural language processing. Kim Plunkett has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Cognitive development, Task and Comprehension. He combines subjects such as Word and Linguistic distance with his study of Vocabulary.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (32.43%)
  • Linguistics (27.57%)
  • Language acquisition (21.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (32.43%)
  • Linguistics (27.57%)
  • Concept learning (5.95%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Kim Plunkett focuses on Cognitive psychology, Linguistics, Concept learning, Developmental psychology and Cognition. His studies in Cognitive psychology integrate themes in fields like Context, Preference and Toddler. His work in the fields of Linguistics, such as Linguistic distance, Vocabulary development, British English and Multilingualism, intersects with other areas such as Colour word.

His Vocabulary development study combines topics in areas such as Syllabic verse, Connectionism and Cognitive science. His research combines Language acquisition and Connectionism. His Early childhood study in the realm of Developmental psychology interacts with subjects such as Early memory.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Memory in 3-month-old infants benefits from a short nap. (13 citations)
  • Spoken-word recognition in 2-year-olds: The tug of war between phonological and semantic activation (13 citations)
  • I: INTRODUCTION: INTRODUCTION (9 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Linguistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognition, Developmental psychology, Language development, Vocabulary and Linguistics. His study in the field of Early childhood also crosses realms of Early memory. His work on Language delay as part of general Language development research is often related to Fragile X syndrome, thus linking different fields of science.

The concepts of his Vocabulary study are interwoven with issues in Lexical semantics and Mental lexicon. His Word knowledge study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cognitive psychology and Toddler. His work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Referent, Eye tracking and Mechanism.
