A Clinical Taxonomy for the Categorization of Language Functions Used by School-Age Children in a Structured Setting.
Klecan-Aker, Joan S.; And Others
Language and Speech, v26 pt2 p131-44 Apr-Jun 1983
Describes a study that examines the pragmatic language functions used by school-age children during a structured dialog consisting of a question-answer paradigm. Develops a 10-category taxonomy to classify subjects' responses and finds the taxonomy to be effective in two ways: (1) the number of categories is sufficient, and (2) the interscorer reliability of the independent judges is high.
