The study contributes to knowledge on how a man’s ego develops in an early age. The construal of egocentric perspective is observed in expressions of self-reference (the pronoun I is expressed explicitly). The method of longitudinal case study is used. Since Slovak language is pro-drop language (personal pronouns can be omitted) the research is set in pragmatic and social context. We examine the pragmatic function of utterances with the pronoun I and their dynamics. While at first the child refers to herself in third-person, at the end of toddlerhood the child can use the pronoun I even when talking about others. This indicates comprehension of reciprocity of perspectives (I versus you).
