Brizuela, Maquela; Andersen, Elaine; Stallings, Lynne
Hispania, v82 n1 p128-41 Mar 1999
Explores the ability of children to use discourse markers (DMs) as indicators of register, examining the distribution of various DMs in the role-play speech of Spanish-dominant bilingual elementary students as they played with puppets representing several characters with different social relationships. Children used DMs to specifically mark differences in status and familiarity/intimacy between interlocutors. (SM)
