Comprehension of Two-Word Instructions by Children in the One-Word Stage
Sachs, Jacqueline; Truswell, Lynn
Journal of Child Language, 5, 1, 17-24, Feb 78
Twelve one-word-stage children were given minimally contrasting two-word instructions. Since non-linguistic cues were eliminated, comprehension involved making non-syntactic inferences from the word combinations. The children could respond correctly to some of the instructions, and even carried out some unfamiliar activities. (Author/SW)
