Children's Understanding of the Evidential Connotation of "Know" in Relation to Overestimation of Their Own Knowledge.
Mitchell, Peter; Robinson, Elizabeth J.
Journal of Child Language, v19 n1 p167-82 Feb 1992
Examines five to seven year olds' assumptions about the experiential connotation of "I know that's X." Two experiments compare two groups of children (five and six year olds, six and seven year olds) who were asked to choose between items and asked whether they were sure or whether they knew they had made the right choice.
