Holophrases, Speech Acts and Language Universals
Dore, John
Journal of Child Language, 2, 1, 21-40, Apr 75
The arguments for and against viewing the child's initial one-word utterances as holophrases are reviewed. An alternative view of early language development, which takes the speech act as the basic unit of linguistic communication, rather than the sentence, is offered as a solution to the holophrase controversy.
