Children's Ability to Infer Utterance Veracity From Speaker Informedness.
Robinson, E. J.; Champion, H.; Mitchell, P.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n2 p535-46 Mar 1999
Examined relationship between children's ability to infer the veracity of an adult's statement and the adult's informedness. Found that children tended to believe utterances from speakers who were better informed than they themselves were and to disbelieve less well-informed speakers, with no age-related differences. Children gave explicit knowledge judgments when no utterances were given. (Author/KB)
