Language and Operations in Children's Class Inclusion Reasoning: The Operational Semantic Theory of Reasoning.
Carpendale, Jeremy I.; And Others
Developmental Review, v16 n4 p391-415 Dec 1996
Argues that reasoning is not governed by mental logic or models. Proposes new operational semantic theory, in which reasoning is based on children's operational understanding of key terms in a given problem. Reports results of a study of class inclusion in which dramatic differences in performance were found as the result of linguistic context. Also explores fuzzy-trace theory. (EV)
