Preschool Children's Understanding of the Coordinators "And" and "Or"
Johansson, Bo S.; Sjolin, Barbro
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 19, 2, 233-240, Apr 75
This study of the understanding of the words "and" and "or" in children, ages 2-7 1/2, indicates that "and" is used to express enumeration, and "or" to express alternatives, and that most children's responses are correct at age 4 and beyond. Differences between the linguistic and logical meaning of connection are discussed. (Author/LLK)
