Finding a Voice: Language and Play in the Home Corner.
Martin, Wendy; Dombey, Henrietta
Language and Education, v16 n1 p48-61 2002
Suggests that children are actively engaged in recreating, rather than reproducing, playful versions of adult roles, in continual negotiation with their play partners. They sustain multiple, concurrent identities as they draw on a variety of voices as both narrators and narrated characters, telling stories about themselves and other players, and becoming part of the stories told by others.
