Children's Comprehension of Their Mothers' Question-Directives
Shatz, Marilyn
Journal of Child Language, 5, 1, 39-46, Feb 78
This work investigated the young child's ability to respond appropriately to the intended, as opposed to the literal, meaning of one class of such utterances, requests for action. An action-based response heuristic is proposed to explain the apparent ability of two-year-olds to deal with indirect speech acts. (Author/SW)
