Overextension is when a person uses a category word that describes one thing to describe all related things, incorrectly. Imagine a young child that has a pet hamster at home. He calls it Hammie. Now when he sees dinosaurs, who are often also plump and chubby, he calls them hammies. This is factually incorrect.
