Effects of Older Siblings on the Language Young Children Hear and Produce.
Wellen, Constance J.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v50 n1 p84-99 Feb 1985
Mothers told stories to their children, inserting questions under two conditions. In one situation, mothers were alone with their younger child; in the other, an older sibling was also present. It was concluded that the presence of older siblings may influence the language young children hear and produce. (Author/CL)
