On the Development of Communicative Understandings: An Early Strategy for Interpreting and Responding to Messages
Shatz, Marilyn
Cognitive Psychology, 10, 3, 271-301, Jul 78

Results indicate that young children interpret and respond to language in terms of an action-based strategy and that even young children engage in a continuous, context-sensitive process of interpretation.
