Abstract
Neural networks, or the so-called connectionist networks, provide a basis for studying child
language development in that such networks emphasise learning, either from observations or
from being told. We report a neural network based simulation of aspects of child language
development, essentially focusing on child language at the one-word stage. We simulate the
learning of associations between the so-called conceptual relations, perceptual entities and
functional words, leading to the production of child-like one-word utterances. The
simulations are carried out using ACCLAIM - A Connectionist Child LAnguage
