Communicating Shared Meaning in Social Pretend Play.
Farver, Jo Ann M.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v7 n4 p501-16 Dec 1992
Examined young children's social play for length of play episodes, use of communicative strategies, and complexity of play. Concluded that children spontaneously constructed shared meaning during interactive play from their shared knowledge about everyday activities and by responding to and building on their partner's ideas as the play unfolded.
