This chapter reviews the evidence for an influence of object knowledge on verb learning. It discusses whether object knowledge influences the learning of all verbs, or only certain types of verbs. In particular, attention to object structure during verb learning is compared in children learning English, a language which most frequently employs intrinsic manner of motion verbs, and in children learning Japanese, a language which most frequently employs extrinsic paths of motion verbs.

Keywords:   object knowledge, verb learning, acquisition of verbs, English language, Japanese language
