Proverbal Understanding in a Pictorial Context
Honeck, Richard P.; And Others
Child Development, 49, 2, 327-31, Jun 78
The ability of 7-, 8-, and 9-year-olds to understand proverbs was examined by having subjects compare each proverb against two thematic pictures: a nonliteral correct interpretation of the proverb and a foil. The results, which contradict the literature, showed consistent above-chance performance across subjects, ages, and proverbs. (Author/JMB)
