Maternal Speech to Three-Month-Old Infants in the United States and Japan.
Toda, Sueko; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v17 n2 p279-94 Jun 1990
Compared American and Japanese maternal speech to three-month-old infants. Observations showed that U.S. mothers were more information oriented than Japanese mothers, and that Japanese mothers were more affect oriented, using more nonsense, onomatopoeic sounds, baby talk, and babies' names. Differences are attributed to culture-specific communicative styles and childbearing beliefs. (GLR)
