From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootstrapping_(linguistics) In psycholinguistics, bootstrapping refers to the question of how language acquisition "gets started." A child gradually acquires a great deal of interlocking knowledge about the structure and vocabulary of his or her language. It has sometimes been proposed that some specific type of linguistic knowledge can be acquired early, and that this enables the child to analyze words or sentences well enough to acquire further knowledge..

The syntactic bootstrapping hypothesis (Landau & Gleitman 1985,
These video clips are from stimuli that were used in a study published by Oetting (1999). The study examined the syntactic bootstrapping skills of children with SLI to interpret and retain the meanings of novel verbs. Syntactic bootstrapping is the ability to use the surrounding grammar of a sentence to “hone in” on the meaning of a novel verb. Consider the first clip of the monkey and bear and suppose you heard the word Kibbing while you viewed it. What does kibbing mean? It all depends on the syntax that you hear with the word.
