Levorato, Maria Chiara; Cacciari, Cristina
Journal of Child Language, v19 n2 p415-33 Jun 1992
Examined children's comprehension and production of idioms through the roles of familiarity and of different kinds of contextual information on comprehension. A sample of 264 children showed that familiarity (i.e., frequency of exposure) plays a minor role and only for children who are not yet able to use contextual information. (18 references) (GLR)
