A Local Contingency Analysis of the Fine-Tuning Hypothesis.
Sokolov, Jeffrey L.
Developmental Psychology, v29 n6 p1008-23 Nov 1993
Tested the fine-tuning hypothesis of language acquisition, which postulates that parents fine-tune their speech to their children's language level, by examining local patterns of interaction within the conversations of three parent-child dyads. The high positive correlations between parent-child dyads for the different interactional patterns supports a developmentally sensitive version of the fine-tuning hypothesis. (MDM)
