Young Children's Understanding of the Cognitive Verb "Forget."
Hill, Roslyn; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v24 n1 p57-79 Feb 1997
Examines the role of prior intention and knowledge in the comprehension of "forget" by young children. Results reveal that children initially have two interpretations of "forget": an unfilled desire and a state of not knowing. Discusses explanations for the late comprehension of "forget" in terms of representation of knowledge and intention, processing capacity and exposure to pragmatic usages. (23 references) (Author/CK)
