Children's Talk and Social Competence
Hutchby, Ian
Children & Society, v19 n1 p66-73 Jan 2005
This article reviews research on the organisation of children's talk. It outlines the range of disciplinary concerns that contribute to the study of children's talk, and focuses on a range of work which foregrounds linkages between children's talk, social interaction and wider social processes. Paying particular attention to studies in conversation analysis, the emphasis is on how talk in peer-group and in child-adult interaction contributes to various theoretical and practical interests in children and society.
