"You Shouldn't Have Brought Me Here!": Interaction Strategies in the Silent Period of an Inner-Directed Second Language Learner.
Krupa-Kwiatkowski, Magdalena
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v31 n2 p133-75 1998
A study of the "silent period" in second-language learning focused on behavior of a 6-year-old Polish child shortly after immigration, in interaction with American children, bilingual Polish-American children, and another recent English-learner. Comparing play environments allowed identification of characteristics of interaction with target-language speakers that can be attributed to specific status and language conditions. (MSE)
