Dorval, Bruce; Eckerman, Carol O.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v49 n2 p82-91 1984
Discusses differences between authors' view of conversation and Ervin-Tripp's (included in this issue) on the similarities between adult and child conversation, planfulness in achieving topic coherence, the generalization of research results to other groups, and the socialization of conversational behavior. Also presents evidence supporting their focus on perspective-related talk. (CB)
