Child Characteristics and Maternal Speech.
Smolak, Linda
Journal of Child Language, v14 n3 p481-92 Oct 1987
An eight-month longitudinal study measuring infants' (N=8) temperament characteristics of activity level, task persistence, and affect and discourse and pragmatic features of their mothers' speech revealed complex interactions between maternal speech and infant temperament. It is argued that nonlinguistic child behaviors may influence maternal speech and deserve further attention in such research. (Author/CB)
