Extracting Truthful Information from Lies: Emergence of the Expression-Representation Distinction.
Lee, Kang; Cameron, Catherine Ann
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v46 n1 p1-20 Jan 2000
Examined preschoolers' understanding that a statement's surface meaning may differ from actual meaning. Found that even 3-year-olds rejected a lie-teller's statement as reflecting his true beliefs and knowledge, indicating basic expression-representation differentiation. Found that most 4- and 5-year-olds and some 3-year-olds knew that a lie may contain information about a lie-teller's true knowledge state as well as the truth. (Author/KB)
