Underextension is when a person uses a word in a very restricted fashion, most commonly seen used by children that are just gaining mastery over language. To give an example of underextension, a young boy that sees a dog in the park will not say it is a dog, for only THEIR dog is a dog. In their mind, they think that a word is referring to a very specific instance of a certain concept other than all types and examples of the concept. (Studies done by: Caplan & Barr, 1989) You may point at the strange dog in the park, but the child would shake their head and tell you no. Upon getting home, they will point at Howard lying in the corner and say “Dog!” Bear with them, they are learning....

Understatement. 不充分的、保守的陳述。understated. 低調的。understatedly. 樸素地、不惹眼地
