"Who Do You Think You Are?": Four Children's Sociolinguistic Strategies in the Negotiation of Self.
Current Issues in Language and Society, v3 n1 p22-35 1996
Explores how children negotiated social identities through language used in spontaneous, casual conversation. Examines how audio transcripts of the childrens' conversations exhibit different aspects of their social "selves" and suggests that their talk can be analyzed in relation to the individual self, the immediately situated social actor, and the person functioning within a wider social context.
