Speaking in a Double-Voice: Role-Making as Influence in Preschoolers' Fantasy Play Situations.
Barnes, Melanie K.; Vangelisti, Anita L.
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v28 n4 p351-89 1995
Examined two series of fantasy play interactions, one in which a young child succeeded in directing the play of her peers and one in which a child was less successful at similar influence attempts. A theory of double-voiced discourse illustrates how dual-orientated talk facilitates children's efforts to influence peers during fantasy play. (54 references) (MDM)
