Contrasting Patterns in the Acquisition of Spatial/Temporal Terms.
Richards, Meredith Martin; Hawpe, Linda S.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v32 n3 p485-512 Dec 1981
Tested competing hypotheses about the acquisition of terms that refer to relationships in both time and space. Hypotheses were as follows: (1) language of time is acquired as a spatial metaphor; and (2) differential experience with the dual senses of each term results in different acquisition patterns depending upon which sense dominates actual usage.
