Eckerman, Carol O.; Didow, Sharon M.
Developmental Psychology, v32 n1 p141-52 Jan 1996
Analyzed toddlers' verbal speech concurrent with nonverbal behavior. Fourteen dyads of unfamiliar peers were observed at 16, 20, 24, and 32 months of age. Found that six types of speech increased in frequency only after the peer partners had shown a marked increase in their readiness to imitate each others' nonverbal actions. (MOK)
