Verbal and Nonverbal Aspects of Mothers' Directives.
Schaffer, H. R.; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v10 n2 p337-55 Jun 1983
Maternal directives to 10- and 18-month-old children were analyzed for verbal and nonverbal aspects. The findings emphasize the multimodal nature of mothers' messages and the way language occurs in an action context and not as isolated output. There was no indication that verbal output replaces nonverbal at this age, but the verbal and nonverbal output are not necessarily parallel. (MSE)
