Papa Pig Just Left for Pigtown: Children's Oral and Written Picture Descriptions under Varying Instructions.
De Temple, Jeanne M.; And Others
Discourse Processes, v14 n4 p469-95 Oct-Dec 1991
Investigates the extent of variation in children's language performance in a picture description task arising from mode (oral or written) versus degree of demand for decontextualization. Finds that children manipulated the wide range of the oral form of the contextualized/decontextualized continuum more skillfully than the written form. Finds no effect from home language environment.
