English and Japanese: A Cross-Cultural Comparison of Parental Styles of Narrative Elicitation.
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v5 n2 p383-407 Dec 1994
Reports on two studies of the similarities and differences in communicative style between Japanese- and English-speaking parents. Findings reveal that Japanese mothers pay considerable attention to their children's narratives and facilitate frequent turn exchanges, whereas English-speaking mothers allow their children to take long monologic turns and give many evaluative comments.
