Analysis of the communication of eight preschool children with deafness found that frequent causes of communication breakdowns in the listening role were attention, comprehension, and absence of mutual desire; causes in the speaking role were intelligibility, informativeness, and inadequate volume. Few repairs were self-initiated; frequent repair strategies were repetition, phonologic enhancement, and elaboration. (Author/JDD)
