Development of Geocentric Spatial Language and Cognition

Development of Geocentric Spatial Language and Cognition: An Eco-cultural Perspective by Pierre R. Dasen
English | 12 Aug. 2010 | ISBN: 052119105X | 408 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Egocentric spatial language uses coordinates in relation to our body to talk about small-scale space ('put the knife on the right of the plate and the fork on the left'), while geocentric spatial language uses geographic coordinates ('put the knife to the east, and the fork to the west').

This book studies child development in Bali, India, Nepal, and Switzerland and explores how children learn to use a geocentric frame both when speaking and performing non-verbal cognitive tasks (such as remembering locations and directions).
