DiCamilla, Frederick J.; Anton, Marta
Canadian Modern Language Review, v53 n4 p609-33 Jun 1997
A study analyzed repetition in the discourse of students of Spanish as a second language working on a writing assignment in collaborative dyads (n=5). Results show the sociocultural and mental activity was mediated by repetition of both first- and second-language utterances, whose effect was to create and maintain a shared perspective of the task and construct scaffolded help.
