Children's Attributions of Pragmatic Intentions and Early Literacy.
Reeder, Kenneth; Shapiro, Jon
Language Awareness, v6 n1 p17-31 1997
Investigates whether systematic links exist between young school-aged children's awareness of others' communicative intentions and early descriptive-expository and narrative writing proficiency. Young children were shown a directive speech act in a puppet-played scenario, and an interview determined the types of communicative intention attributed to the speaker. (40 references) (Author/CK)
