Children's Ambiguous Utterances: A Re-examination of Processing Limitations on Production.
Surian, Luca
Journal of Child Language, v22 n1 p151-69 Feb 1995
Investigated the relationship between children's failures to produce unambiguous utterances and the mental effort demands in children (ages five, six, seven, and nine years), using finger-tapping and message production tasks, separately and simultaneously. Findings suggest that the relative effort requirements of communication decrease with increasing age, supporting a theory of communication development where effort demands are a determinate of message adequacy.
