Title: Infants' understanding of speech as a tool

Abstract: Infants seem to understand that others have internal states that underlie observable behaviour. What is their understanding about how these internal states can be updated? Specifically, do infants understand that speech can serve as a tool to update the internal states of others? I'll describe data suggesting they do, and that they also understand some constraints on the updating of internal states.
