Children's Understanding of Speech Acts in Unconventional Directive Frames
Ackerman, Brian P.
Child Development, 49, 2, 311-18, Jun 78
Examined young children's interpretations of the meanings of indirect speech acts (e.g. it's 10 o'clock) in paragraphs of a contextual type biasing a literal interpretation (time of day) or an extraliteral interpretation (time to prepare for bed). Memory for these meanings was also assessed. (Author/JMB)
