Baxter, Leslie A.; Goldsmith, Daena
Western Journal of Speech Communication, v54 n3 p377-94 Sum 1990
Examines the natural language descriptions employed by American high school adolescents in talking about the kinds of communication events they experience in everyday life. Finds that adolescents describe communication events through use of setting, participant, speech act, and purpose marker terms. Differentiates nine basic clusters of communication events along five underlying semantic dimensions. (KEH)
