Verbally Expressed Modes of Transformation in the Fantasy Play of Black Preschool Children.
McLoyd, Vonnie C.
Child Development, v51 n4 p1133-39 Dec 1980
Examined various ways Black, low-income preschool children transform reality into fantasy during free play. Approximately one-half of the girls' and one-third of the boys' utterances represented fantasy transformations, the most frequent of which were animation, reification, and situational attribution. Found significant effects related to sex of child, but not to age. (Author/DB)
