Temperament and Communicative Competence as Predictors of Young Children's Humor.
Carson, David K.; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v32 n4 p415-26 Oct 1986
Explores the relations between temperament, communicative competence, and humor expression among four- and five-year-old nursery school children. Shows that ratings of communicative competence and various dimensions of temperament account for a significant proportion of the variance in the reported frequency of children's laughter and verbal and behavioral attempts at initiating humor.
