This is a demonstration for Moty & Rhodes (2021) The unintended consequences of the things we say:
What generics communicate to children about unmentioned categories
Study 1 and Study 2 compared whether children heard either generic ("Zarpies are good at...") or specific language ("This zarpie is good at...") to introduce
the target property. The demos show the generic condition across both studies.
Study 3 compared whether the generic was communicated by a knowledgeable or an unknowledgable speaker. The demo shows the unknowledgable speaker condition.
