Development of the Understanding of the Polysemous Meanings of the Mental State Verb Know.
Booth, James R.; Hall, William S.
Cognitive Development, v10 n4 p529-49 Oct-Dec 1995
Investigated children's understanding of meaning of the cognitive verb "know" (as defined by an abstractness and conceptual difficulty hierarchy). Found that knowledge increased with development, and low levels of meaning were mastered before high levels, and more rapidly. Understanding in audio-taped stories was more difficult than in video-taped skits, but both correlated with vocabulary measures. (TM)
