Studies of Interaction. Working Paper of the Language Behavior Research Laboratory, No. 16.
Rainey, Mary; And Others
Seven papers are provided. Mary Rainey's paper, "Style Switching in a Head Start Class," considers speech styles used in the classroom. "Language Acquisition in the Deaf: Some Suggestions for Inclusion in the Field Manual," by Carol Pfuderer, suggests areas of psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic research relevant to the exploration of deaf children's language. "Observations of a Mother-Child Interaction," by Sybillyn Mehan describes the interaction between a 17-month-old child and her parents. "Child Rearing and Cognitive Styles of Lower-Class Negro Children," by Abigail Sher studies the relationship between the affective and cognitive dimensions of child-rearing and relates systematic differences in the aspects of child-rearing to aspects of cognitive differentiation in lower class families. "Games, Groups, and Children," by Janet Tallman, explores the social structure of a child's interactive world from an analysis of the kinds of speech play used, and how children orient themselves to one another through the use of speech play. An untitled paper by Sheila Seitel discusses cross-cultural differences in the role of language education in the educational process and in socialization, and Linda Hubbell's paper, "Methods for Studying the Child's Acquisition of Sociolinguistic Competence," discusses the research problems caused by the "generic nature of the child's mind."
