The Development of Metaphoric Understanding
Winner, Ellen; And Others
Developmental Psychology, 12, 4, 289-297, Jul 76

Results suggest certain cognitive prerequisites of mature metaphoric comprehension and help to clarify the ontogenetic relations among the abilities to produce, comprehend, and explicate the rationale of metaphoric language.
