Introducing Infants to Referential Events: A Developmental Study of Maternal Ostensive Marking in French.
Colas, Annie
Journal of Child Language, v26 n1 p113-32 Feb 1999
Examined how French mothers' gestures and prosody contributed to their infants' conversational competence, investigating how they used ostensive marking to point out common references at different developmental stages. Longitudinal observations of mother/infant dyads during free play at three developmental stages indicated that mothers adapted their gestures to their infants' processing levels. (SM)
