Children's Understanding of the Speaker's Meaning in Referential Communication.
Ackerman, Brian P.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v55 n1 p56-87 Feb 1993

Variations in presentation tested the effects of question sequence, of delay between ambiguous reference and interrogation, and of the complication of the illustration on children's ability to detect insufficiency of information.
