Prerequisites to the Analysis of Paraphrase in Classroom Verbal Interaction.
Keyes, Judith Droz; Loflin, Marvin D.
This paper sets forth a comparative description of the constructs required to isolate and analyze language behavior central to the study of paraphrase--which is here considered central to an understanding of the process of idea sharing in the classroom. Findings are presented which suggest significant black/white differences in terms of these constructs. In particular, black pupils use more wh- complements ("what I want" in "I know what I want"); black pupils adjoin more frequently than do whites, specifically with conditional ("if you leave I'll cry") and purposive ("Study hall is provided for pupils to study in"); white pupils use more conjoining additive links ("Tom left and Mary stayed"), and there is more proform substitution of the type involving a referent shorter than a simplex sentence in white classrooms than in black classrooms.
