The Ontogenesis of Speech Acts
Bruner, Jerome S.
Journal of Child Language, 2, 1, 1-19, Apr 75
A speech act approach to the transition from pre-linguistic to linguistic communication is adopted in order to consider language in relation to behavior and to allow for an emphasis on the use, rather than the form, of language. A pilot study of mothers and infants is discussed. (Author/RM)
