The Developmental Relation between Cognitive Stage and the Comprehension of Speaker Uncertainty.
Green, Michael G.
Child Development, v50 n3 p666-74 Sep 1979
Two cognitive tasks of physical uncertainty were used to assign 56 subjects (aged 5 to 17 years) to one of three cognitive stages. Two tests for comprehension of speaker uncertainty were then administered to all participants. Results were interpreted as showing that development of cognitive stages is structurally related to comprehension of speech act uncertainty. (JMB)
