Early Talk About the Past Revisited: Affect in Working-Class and Middle-Class Children's Co-Narrations.
Burger, Lisa K.; Miller, Peggy J.
Journal of Child Language, v26 n1 p133-62 Feb 1999
Investigated personal storytelling among young working-class and middle-class children, observing them at home at age 2; age 6 and 3; and under-one year. Analysis of generic properties, narrative content, and emotion talk revealed a complex configuration of similarities and differences. Differentiation between working-class and middle-class communities in the content of early narratives may occur primarily with respect to negative experience. (SM)
