Children's Understanding of Misinterpretation: Source Identification and Perspective-Taking.
Mash, Clay; Pillow, Bradford H.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v44 n2 p129-40 Apr 1998
Investigated relationship between young children's ability to predict another observer's interpretation of an ambiguous picture and to identify the source of a misinterpretation after it had occurred. Found that six-year-olds were more likely than four- and five-year-olds to predict that a puppet would misinterpret the target-restricted view and to explain the mistake by explicitly referring to pictures seen previously.
