Hickmann, Maya; Hendriks, Henriette
Journal of Child Language, v26 n2 p419-52 Jun 1999
The aim of this study was to determine universal versus language-specific aspects of children's ability to organize cohesive anaphoric relations in discourse. Analyses examine narratives produced on the basis of two picture sentences by subjects of four ages (preschoolers, 7-year olds, 10-year olds, and adults) in four languages: English, German, French, and Mandarin Chinese (Author/VWL)
