In adult conversations involving negation, our knowledge is usually misaligned with our listener’s expectations

If it were aligned, then there would be no use for verbal negation

E.g. A 16 month old says “gone” after a flame is blown out from a match.

What Volterra and Antinucci believe is that the child negates the topic “the flame is present” which the child infers the listener believes.
