    to myeslf but I didn’t hear myeslf!” (I wrote down the exact words and day, but I don’t have them here.) It would be interesting to try to develop a means of asking young children about whether they experience inner speech. Also, once they report it, where is it subjectively located (e.g., inside the head)? Among children who can read: When can they start to read silently to themselves, with inner speech, and when does reading *have* to be out loud?(3.) I am generally curious about the development of illusion (e.g. in my post on development of the moon illusion), but there seems to be little published on the topic. We could present standard illusory stimuli to children and see what they report. Since it doesn’t seem to be until age 4 that they understand the appearance/reality distinction, it will be important to ensure that they don’t know that the stimuli are misleading or tricky in any way, so that the reality/appearance judgments are aligned.(4.) The location of me / the location of thinking / the location of feeling. Try versions of this question and see if you can localize it, with the main competitors being head and chest. Aristotle and Mencius said that they thought with their hearts; most Western adults tend to locate thinking (and inner speech) in the head. Do children give more heartish locations than adults?(5.) Try the “rubber hand” illusion, and variants of it, with children — are their body maps more labile than adults? Don’t just ask with words, but do something like stab the rubber hand with a pencil and note the child’s reaction — vs. your spouse’s, say, after inducing the illusion in her.(6.) Double images, e.g., with the finger near the nose while the eyes are focused in the distance….Anyhow, those are a few off the top of my head which I have tried with my own children.
