Pronoun Reversals: Who, When, and Why?
Dale, Philip S.; Crain-Thoreson, Catherine
Journal of Child Language, v20 n3 p573-89 Oct 1993
The role of cognitive and linguistic individual differences as well as contextual factors and processing complexity were examined as determinants of pronoun reversal (I/you). It is proposed that pronoun reversals commonly result from a failure to perform a deicitic shift, which is especially likely when children's psycholinguistic processing resources are taxed.
