Body Partonomy: How Children Partition the Human Body.
Johnson, Carl Nils; Kendrick, Kimberly
Developmental Psychology, v20 n5 p967-74 Sep 1984
Concepts of body parts and their relationships were assessed in children ages three, four, and five, as well as in adults. Three specific questions were addressed: (1) What do children understand about such "partonomic" relations? (2) Is there an order in the acquisition of partonomic concepts? and (3) Do children exhibit any confusions in their acquisition of such concepts? (Author/RH)
