Conflict Talk: Sociolinguistic Challenges to Self-Assertion and How Young Girls Meet Them.
Sheldon, Amy
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v38 n1 p95-117 Jan 1992
Cultural stereotypes that interpret girls as less forceful or less assertive than boys in pursuing their own agendas, particularly during conflict episodes, are questioned. A theory of double-voice discourse is proposed to characterize a type of conflict talk that has a dual orientation, and examples for three- and four-year-old girls' talk are given. (Author/LB)
