This study was conducted to assess whether preschoolers in Malaysia overrideform class cues in the service ofmaintaining word-meaning assumptions. It was a replication ofexperiment two in "Preschoolers' Use of Form Class Cues in Word Learning" (Hall, Quantz & Persoage, 2000). A total of 175 children participated in this study, in which 50 children were of age four, 55 children were of age five and 70 children ofage six. Eight stuffed toys were divided into labeled-category objects and unlabeled-category objects used in this experiment. One pair of the objects, which consists of labeled-category object and unlabeled-category object was analyzed in this research. Children were required to choose a toy from labeled-category objects or unlabeled-category objects in response to the questions posted by the researcher. The questions were in the forms of either count-noun, adjective or proper-name.
