Narrative Style in the Two Languages of a Bilingual Child.
Dart, Sarah N.
Journal of Child Language, v19 n2 p367-87 Jun 1992
Presents a comparative analysis of spontaneous story-telling from a bilingual (English and French) four year old without an audience and therefore free of any direct influence from another person. It is found that the French narratives contained a much larger percentage of modifiers and employed a greater variety of tenses. (28 references) (GLR)
