Parents' Speech to Toddlers: The Effect of Play Context.
O'Brien, Marion; Nagle, Keith J.
Journal of Child Language, v14 n2 p269-79 Jun 1987
Analysis of parent language with toddlers with three different types of toys found few differences as a function of parent or child gender. The three contexts elicited their own language patterns and suggested that children who play frequently with dolls receive more opportunities to learn and practice language. (Author/CB)
