    Abstract

    In their response to our article (1), Kinzler and Liberman (2) challenge our proposal that the primary basis for infants’ preference for native speakers stems from a preference for social partners, who are perceived as the best teachers. Instead, the authors propose that, in addition to infants perceiving native speakers as optimal informants, infants use language to reason about social structures and form inferences about groups and their members.
