Understanding Pretense as Pretense.
Wellman, Henry M.; Hickling, Anne K.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v58 n1 p93-102 1993
This commentary on the research reported in this monograph stresses the importance of the analogy between the processes involved in pretense comprehension and the processes required to comprehend written or spoken text. The commentary also raises the concern that children could perform correctly on pretense problems using processes of text comprehension without understanding the pretense as pretense. (BC)
