Embodying pretense: pretend play and language in typical and atypical development

What is the impact of enactive approaches to cognition on our understanding of the relation between pretend play and language in development?

In this Journal of Applied Psycholinguistics’ Special Issue, edited by Dr. Sparaci and Dr. Rinaldi, we asked 13 researchers from multiple fields (e.g. philosophy, developmental psychology, education) to present their original viable answers to this core question in 6 different essays. Each essay tackles this issue from a different viewpoint, contributing towards building a better understanding of child play.
