Early Talk about the Past: The Origins of Conversational Stories of Personal Experience.
Miller, Peggy J.; Sperry, Linda L.
Journal of Child Language, v15 n2 p293-315 Jun 1988
Analyzes data regarding children's early talk about past experiences, resulting from longitudinal home observations of five working-class mothers and their two-year-olds. Results indicate that children talked primarily of negative past events, especially those involving physical harm, and that during this period temporally-ordered sequences increased dramatically.
