Edwards (1978) suggests that an important source of early word meanings for a child are the constraints an adult imposes on a child’s actions by social prohibition and those imposed by the physical world.

He focuses on 3 areas of meaning: negation, possession, and words (Adjectives and Verbs).

He demonstrates the connection between prohibitions, the child’s use of rejection negation and possession

i.e. “No, no touch,” “Mummy’s,” and “don’t” (self-prohibited contexts)
