Research with animals sometimes reveals startling evidence of smart cognition in non-human species. , 2006). , 2007). Some dogs are capable of instant learning (or ‘fast mapping’) of the link between a spoken word and its referent. Kaminski et al. (2004) report the fascinating study of Rico, a Border collie, who understood over 200 spoken words. Rico was able to select a novel object from seven familiar items (for which he already knew the names) when he was presented with a novel spoken name.

However, the same lexical problems could be due to difficulties with semantic processing, which could in turn be due to earlier deficits in the conceptual processing that underpins semantic development. On the other hand, all these phonological and semantic processes could be intact, with problems arising only in making or recalling the links between semantics and phonology. Differentiation of these possibilities requires a constructivist approach. As is evident from the discussion in Thomas (2005), this approach has a number of implications: • It requires us to construct task-specific trajectories, with hypothesized pathways from early processing systems to complex outcomes.
