The internalization of mental state discourse contributes to social understanding

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (1):125-126 (2004)
Abstract
Children's exposure to and participation in mental state discourse contributes to their development of social understanding. Vygotsky's mechanism of internalization is used to account for this process, which has advantages of cultural and linguistic universality. If children internalize mental state discourse, however, then their own use of mental state language should be related to social understanding.
