Keywords: Language | theory of mind | cross-linguistic studies

Research on theory of mind development has made important advances in the last two decades, however, there is much to be unveiled, particularly regarding the mechanisms underlying this aspect of development. Recent research has investigated a possible relationship between language and theory of mind and several studies have been conducted in different linguistic communities. The work presented here is aimed, therefore, at presenting different theoretical accounts of the relationship between language and theory of mind and reinforcing the importance of cross-linguistic studies. Moreover, this work is aimed at pointing to interesting directions for research on theory of mind in Brazil.
