In Cinderella's Slippers? Story Comprehension from the Protagonist's Point of View.
Rall, Jaime; Harris, Paul L.
Developmental Psychology, v36 n2 p202-08 Mar 2000
Examined preschool children's recall of deictic verbs of motion presented within stories either consistently or inconsistently with the protagonist's viewpoint. Found that 3- and 4-year-olds accurately recalled verbs of motion (come, go, bring, take) that were consistent with the protagonist's viewpoint but made substitution errors of inconsistently presented verbs. Suggested that preschoolers interpret narrated movements similarly to adults. (Author/KB)
