Power Relationships, Interactional Dominance and Manipulation Strategies in Group Conversations of Turkish-Danish Children.
Madsen, Lian Malai
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v24 n1-2 p90-100 2003
Focuses on interactional dominance and power wielding in bilingual conversation among school children. Finds that different pragmatic strategies are used by bilingual children as a means of negotiating power relationships and identities, but that the social relations and the power bases brought into the conversations by interactants make the outcomes of the negotiations predictable.
