Learning To Talk and Keep Silent about Everyday Routines: A Study of Verbal Interaction between Young Children and Their Caregivers.
Aukrust, Vibeke Grover
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v40 n4 p311-24 Dec 1996
Child and caregiver conversations were studied within a highly redundant caretaking routine in a preschool setting with six children and three caregivers. Results suggest that the hypothesis of predictability and semantic contingency are of relevance in explaining how children learn to talk about the here-and-now. (SLD)
