Gender Differences in Early Mother-Child Interactions: Talking about an Imminent Event.
Eisenmann, Barbara
Discourse Processes, v24 n2-3 p309-35 1997
Examines maternal modes of organizing an imminent emotional event, a brief separation from the child. Finds that the mothers displayed two ways of structuring the future event, and these different modes were related statistically to the gender of the child. Investigates how the mother directs the child's mental processes by using augments of speech, actions, intonation contours and pauses. (SR)
