Stages of Egocentrism in Children's Use of "This" and "That": A Different Point of View
Webb, Pamela A.; Abrahamson, Adele A.
Journal of Child Language, 3, 3, 349-367, Oct 76
Acquisition of the words "this" and "that" was tested by a comprehension and a production task with children aged 4 and 7. It was confirmed that children would learn the spatial contrast between the words and apply it from the speakers viewpoint; non-egocentrism was not deemed necessary for correct use. (CHK)
