Young Children's Understanding of Pretense.
Harris, Paul L.; Kavanaugh, Robert D.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v58 n1 p1-92 1993
Seven experiments tested 18- to 36-month-old children's understanding of adult pretense. Results indicated that children understood when adults referred to make-believe substances or made make-believe substitutions; appropriately directed their pretend actions; understood the causal consequences of imaginary actions; produced suitable remedial action in response to imaginary actions; and verbally described imaginary actions.
