A Longitudinal Study of Pragmatic Differentiation in Young Bilingual Children.
Nicoladis, Elena; Genesee, Fred
Language Learning, v46 n3 p439-64 Sep 1996
Examined whether there is an earlier developmental stage than 2 years of age when bilingual children do not use their languages in pragmatically differentiated ways. Analyses of recordings of four French-English bilingual children in Canada during free play sessions with their mothers and fathers suggest a stage very early in development when bilingual children do not show pragmatic differentiation in language use.
