The Interactive Framing of Play in Adult Conversations.
Glenn, Phillip J.; Knapp, Mark L.
Communication Quarterly, v35 n1 p48-66 Win 1987
Indicates that subjects signalled play through such messages as overt invitations, nonverbal cues, abrupt topic changes, and outrageous or put-on utterances. Determines that the nature of these messages led to different types of episodes: play with, for, or at a partner. Finds that the signalling of play is often incomplete or taken for granted by participants. (JD)
