Movement and Location in the Acquisition of Deictic Verbs
Macrae, Alison J.
Journal of Child Language, 3, 2, 191-204, Jun 76
The use of the verbs "go" and "come" was examined in the spontaneous speech of seven two-year-olds. As verbs of motion, the words were used in the context of describing the contour of movement rather than as means of relating end-points of a journey. This is considered crucial in explaining children's difficulty in discriminating the verbs in experimental tasks. (Author/RM)
