Where there is distortion of real-world scripts, we may need to look at script understanding and play separately to discover the extent to which a child is toying with reality and the extent to which what seems to be fantasy and imagination is really a represen­ tation of social misunderstanding. More importantly, however, the ability to create "what ifs," to function in the subjunctive and simulative mode, is itself a vital aspect of human experience and hence of social understanding, one that deserves much more extensive study.
