Children's Elicited Use of Pragmatic Language Functions: How Six- and Seven-Year-Old Children Adapt to the Interactional Environments of Story Scenarios.
Pershey, Monica Gordon
Language Awareness, v9 n4 p218-35 2000
Used an elicitation procedure to reveal how 6- and 7-year-old children adapted to the pragmatic context of a story and furnished a remark that would be pragmatically appropriate for a story character to utter. Children's use of self-generated, extra-textual language reveals one way that pragmatic language skill is at work when young children comprehend and respond to text. (Author/VWL)
