Social Pretend Play in Korean- and Anglo-American Preschoolers.
Farver, Jo Ann M.; Shin, Yoolim Lee
Child Development, v68 n3 p544-56 Jun 1997
Observed Anglo- and Korean-American preschoolers during free play and experimental toy play. Found that Korean-Americans' play included everyday activity and family role themes, whereas Anglo-Americans' play enacted danger and fantastic themes. Anglo-Americans described their own actions and used directives, whereas Korean Americans described their partners' actions and used tag questions, semantic ties, agreement statements, and polite requests.
