Children and Metaphors.
Vosniadou, Stella
Child Development, v58 n3 p870-85 Jun 1987
Recent research on the development of children's abilities to comprehend and produce metaphorical language is reviewed. It is argued that the ability to produce and comprehend metaphorical language emerges out of children's undifferentiated similarity notions and gradually develops into a capacity to encompass an increased variety of conceptual domains.
