Conversational Patterns of Two-Year-Old Twins in Mother-Twin-Twin Triads.
Barton, Michelle E.; Strosberg, Randi
Journal of Child Language, v24 n1 p257-69 Feb 1997
Examines conversational interaction in mother-twin-twin triads during play. Findings, paralleling those for mother-infant-sibling triads, reveal that these conversations are five times longer and elicit more turns from all speakers than dyadic conversations between a mother and a single twin and that the unique effects of triadic exchanges are not due to the relative linguistic levels of the child partners.
