A QUESTION IN SEMANTIC DEVELOPMENT--WHAT DOES A CHILD MEAN WHEN HE SAYS "NO".
MCNEILL, DAVID; MCNEILL, NOBUKO B.
JAPANESE HAS FOUR COMMONLY OCCURRING NEGATIVE FORMS WHICH CAN BE ORGANIZED INTO THREE DIMENSIONS OR CONTRASTS. THE DIMENSIONS ARE TENTATIVELY LABELED--EXISTENCE-TRUTH, INTERNAL-EXTERNAL, AND ENTAILMENT-NON-ENTAILMENT. AN EXAMINATION OF THE SPEECH OF ONE JAPANESE CHILD INDICATES THAT THE ORDER IN WHICH THESE DIMENSIONS ARE ACQUIRED IS THE SAME AS THE ORDER LISTED. ONE IMPLICATION OF THIS SEQUENCE OF DEVELOPMENT IS THAT INITIALLY THE CHILD'S LANGUAGE WAS NOT SUFFICIENTLY EGOCENTRIC. THIS IMPLICATION IS SEEN AS FAVORING VYGOTSKY'S THEORIES RATHER THAN THOSE OF PIAGET. THIS REPORT WAS PUBLISHED IN "STUDIES IN LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE BEHAVIOR, PROGRESS REPORT IV," 1967, BY THE CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE BEHAVIOR, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, 220 EAST HURON STREET, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48108.
