    Child Dev 72:1054-70. 2001
    ..Four-year-olds learned better in the speaker-made than in the friend-made condition; 3-year-olds, however, showed relatively poor learning in both conditions. These findings suggest that theory-of-mind developments impact word learning...

    Mark A Sabbagh
    Queen s University, Kingston ON, Canada
    J Cogn Neurosci 16:415-26. 2004

    Mark A Sabbagh
    Psychology Department, Queen s University at Kingston, Ontario, Canada
    Dev Sci 11:354-60. 2008
