Three-Year-Olds' Problems with False Belief: Conceptual Deficit or Linguistic Artifact?
Lewis, Charlie; Osborne, Amanda
Child Development, v61 n5 p1514-19 Oct 1990
Examined the main technique used to show a basic inability in three-year olds to make judgments about a person's thoughts when that person's knowledge happens to be false. Results reveal that test questions that are temporally specific and syntactically straightforward enable most three-year olds to attribute false beliefs to others. (RH)
