Haslett, Betty J.
Human Communication Research, v9 n2 p114-29 Win 1983
Using Tough's hierarchical analysis of language functions, this study found developmental differences in the communicative functions and strategies used by preschoolers in their conversations with one another. Generally found that females developed language strategies earlier than males and achieved a more advanced level of cognitive complexity and communicative adaptability. (PD)
