Yip, Michael C. W.
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v35 n1 p3-4 Nov 2013
This study measured naturalistic language stimulation in Hong Kong among eight bilingual (Cantonese, English) infants. Two findings were that (a) infants received more indirect (adult-to-adult) than direct (adult-to-infant) language stimulation and (b) infants received 6.8 [hours] of language stimulation per day with more fillers, vocatives, and baby talk than declaratives, interrogatives, and imperatives.
