The Ontogeny of the Verification System.
Akiyama, M. Michael; Guillory, Andrea W.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v22 n3 p333-40 Jun 1983
Young children found it difficult to verify negative statements, but found affirmative statements, affirmative questions, and negative questions equally easy to deal with. It is proposed that children acquire the answering system earlier than the verification system, and use answering to verify statements before acquiring the verification system. (MSE)
