Second Language Acquisition in the Elementary Schools: The Negotiation of Meaning by Native-Speaking and Nonnative-Speaking Peers.
Flanigan, Beverly Olson
Bilingual Review, v14 n3 p25-40 Sep-Dec 1987-88
Study of the conversational interaction of elementary school children, about one-third of whom were limited-English-proficient, found that proficient classmates used little "caretaker speech" or "foreigner talk" and that the amount of social talk did not markedly affect second-language proficiency or the ability to use it in academic activities.
