Words Adults Chose to Describe Preschool Children's Writing and Other Graphic Products.
Burrows, Evelyn Honor
Child Study Journal, v24 n4 p327-39 1994
Examined the words used by 20 mothers and 20 nonmothers to describe the writing and drawing products of preschool children. Found that mothers were more likely than nonmothers to identify the products using the same label as the child, but found no difference between the groups in the use of the terms "writing" and "drawing" rather than "scribbling."
