Recent Developments in Speech to Children: We've Come a Long Way, Baby-talk.
Bohannon, John Neil, III; Leubecker, Amye Warren
Language Sciences, v10 n1 p89-110 1988
Describes a model that allows children to control the complexity of the speech they hear within conversations on a moment-to-moment basis. Experimental and observational data clearly delineate the reciprocal nature of how speakers "fine-tune" their speech to listeners. The effects of child-directed speech on language development are discussed. (Author/CB)
