This study is an examination of preschool-age English speaking children's interactive play behaviours with a non-English speaking child (NEC). The play types of a NEC were reported using the Parten's categories of solitary, parallel and interactive play. In addition, English-speaking children's interactive play with a NEC were reported in this study using categories of affiliative, possession-related, prosocial and aggressive behaviour from Ramsey's 1987 study. (Contains 3 figures and 1 note.)
