Dynamic Contextual Variables and the Directives of Persons with Mental Retardation.
Nuccio, Jill Bibler; Abbeduto, Leonard
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v97 n5 p547-58 Mar 1993
The ability of 14 persons (ages 10-20) with and 14 children (ages 5-10) without mental retardation (MR) to adjust the linguistic form of directives as a function of the listener's affective state and activity level was examined. Although both subject groups were sensitive to the communicative context, directives of MR subjects were more imposing. (Author/DB)
