This study is focused on pragmatic competence in children. Our experimental protocol allows to investigate the subject’s ability to understand and produce different types of communicative acts, as for example, basic speech acts, direct and indirect speech acts, irony and deceit. The protocol is composed by four evaluation scales: linguistic, extralinguistic, paralinguistic and social appropriateness. The battery was administered individually to 300 children, equally divided into three age groups: from 5 to 5;6, from 6;6 to 7 and from 8 to 8;6 years. The results reveal the existence of trends of difficulty in the comprehension and production of different sorts of communicative acts and the improvement of children’s performances with the increase of their age.
