Polyadic Language Socialization Strategy: The Case of Toddlers in Senegal.
Rabain-Jamin, Jacqueline
Discourse Processes, v26 n1 p43-66 1998
Contributes to research on child-directed speech by examining the use of two types of utterances (reported speech and prompts) in interactions involving mothers, toddlers, and other adults or siblings in rural Senegal. Shows that mothers attempt to promote exchange in a triadic framework, with the goal of making the child part of a complex set of social relationships. (SR)
