Ethnographic Interpretations of Parent-Child Discourse in Huli.
Goldman, Laurence Richard
Journal of Child Language, v14 n3 p447-66 Oct 1987
Considers the culturally patterned set of analogic renamings found in Huli baby talk, nursery rhymes, and children's verbal games. An analysis of socialization activities shows a marked concern with body motifs and appellations and inter-adult behavior involving talk about the body, and showing that such language sensitizes children to cultural rules about speaking.
