Maternal Speech: Strategy or Response?
Smolak, Linda; Weinraub, Marsha
Journal of Child Language, v10 n2 p369-80 Jun 1983
A study was undertaken to separate elements of maternal speech heavily influenced by the children's language levels from those representing the mothers' consistent style or strategy for "teaching" language. A striking similarity was found between speech mothers used with their daughters and that used with their daughters' friends. (MSE)
