Context Dependent Properties of Teachers' Speech
Feldman, Carol Fleisher; Wertsch, James V.
Youth and Society, 7, 3, 227-258, Mar 76
The speech of elementary school teachers in two contexts (adult-adult conversation and the classroom) was examined for the use of stance-indicating devices, i.e. ways of conveying one's attitudes towards a proposition; independent evidence supports the notion that teachers' perception of social distance between themselves and their listeners determine the level of their use of stance indicating devices.
