Dunn, Judy; Kendrick, Carol
Journal of Child Language, v9 n3 p579-95 Oct 1982
Describes adjustments in speech patterns made by two- and three-year-olds when talking to their 14-month-old siblings and compares these changes with those made by mothers addressing their babies. Individual differences between the children indicate two types of influence on the adjustments made--pragmatic and emotional. (EKN)
