Learning About Points of View: Spatial Perspective and the Acquisition of "I/You."
Loveland, Katherine A.
Journal of Child Language, v11 n3 p535-56 Oct 1984
A cross-sectional and a longitudinal study of two-year-old children was performed to investigate the developmental relationship between understanding differences in spatial point of view and correct comprehension and production of I/you pronouns. Results suggest that understanding spatial points of view is a cognitive prerequisite to understanding speaker's point of view, which governs the pragmatics of I/you pronouns. (SL)
