Responses to Requests for Conversational Repair by Adults with Mental Retardation.
Brinton, Bonnie; Fujiki, Martin
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n5 p1087-95 Oct 1991
Comparison of conversational adjustments made in response to listener feedback by 22 community-based and 22 institutionalized adults with mental retardation found that community-based subjects used certain sophisticated repair strategies more often than did institutionalized subjects. However, neither group was able to clarify their conversation consistent with their general levels of intellectual and linguistic functioning. (Author/DB)
