Language and the Ability to Evaluate Contradictions and Tautologies
Osherson, Daniel N.
Cognition, 3, 3, 213-26, 74/75
Results of two experiments support these hypotheses: 1) children tend to treat contradictions and tautologies as empirical statements, due to their nonempirical character, not merely to the logical words occurring in them; and 2) the ability to examine language objectively is necessary for the ability to correctly evaluate nonempirical statements.
