The Development of Conversation between Mothers and Babies
Snow, Catherine E.
Journal of Child Language, 4, 1, 1-22, Feb 77
The speech of two mothers to their infants between three and eighteen months was analyzed. Simplicity of speech was about the same at all ages, not showing abrupt change as children began to talk. It is suggested that mothers used a conversational model and changes reflect children's growing conversational ability. (CHK)
