Acquisition of COME & GO terms in Marquesan; the session shows an interaction between the researcher and the subject (8;0). The task is a replication of Danziger's Come & Go task (see 19XX); in this task there are four distinct locations with toy objects and toy animals at four different locations on a table; the subject and researcher have one location each and are facing each other; the other two locations are at either side of the table; three locations (subject, researcher and other) have a little enclosure where a toy animal lives; one location only consists of a drinking trough; researcher and subject choose an animal; the task is as follows: each animal is made to move in turn, once to the drinking trough and once to the other animals to visit each other; each move to a different location (other than the animal's own enclosure) is accompanied by a return journey to the animals own enclosure; the researcher moves the animals herself, but encourages the subject move its own animal; each animal is moved between each location; when moving the animal the researcher asks the subject whether the animal is COMING or GOING.

Acquisition of spatial terms in Marquesan; the session shows the interaction between two children by performing the Farm Animals object-object matching task; each interaction is played with two players, one being the Director (=D) and one being the Matcher (M). Both players are seperated by a screen and gaze in the same direction. The Director has to explain an array of toy objects to the Matcher. The Matcher has to construct the array of objects by following the Director's instructions. The original task is a photo-object matching task; this sometimes showed to be leading to problems (due to the way the Director holds the photo) and the reference is not always clear. That is the reason why the researcher changed the task to an object-object matching task. the Director of the game is (8;1) and the Matcher (9;2); the surroundings are unfamiliar to the children; the session is recorded during the day; Director explains configuration 29oc; this configuration does not exist in the original Farm Animals game in Danziger & Hill (1993), but is designer by the researcher; gaze of direction is AROSS (direction Haákuti/Hakahau);
