"She Don't Care": Negatives in Children's Narratives.
Ely, Richard; MacGibbon, Ann; McCabe, Allyssa
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v46 n3 p465-90 Jul 2000
Developed taxonomy of eight types of negation found in children's narratives, and examined children's personal narratives and narratives elicited by picture books. Found most frequent negation to be reference to actions that did not happen. Younger children used negation more than older children, and negation occurred more frequently in personal than in picture book elicited narratives. (DLH)
