Modes of Speech as a Developmental Hierarchy: A Descriptive Study.
Riccillo, Samuel C.
Western Journal of Speech Communication, v47 n1 p1-15 Win 1983
This study lends support to the modes of speech continuum and points to a relationship between linguistic and communicative competence. Results indicated that communicative competence of preschoolers increased with age and suggested a hierarchy from context-centered through topic-centered probes. Correlations with linguistic competence indicated separate but related developmental paths. (PD)
