Directive Interactions and Early Vocabulary Development: The Role of Joint Attentional Focus.
Ahktar, Nameera; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v18 n1 p41-49 Feb 1991
Twelve mothers were videotaped interacting with their children, aged 13 months, and 100 maternal utterances were coded for pragmatic intent. Prescriptives were coded as either changing or following the child's focus of attention. Results show that, given a joint focus, directing a 13-month-old's behavior can have beneficial effects on subsequent development. (24 references) (JL)
