Book Information

   

Title: Talking to Adults
Subtitle: The Contribution of Multiparty Discourse to Language Acquisition
Edited By: Shoshana Blum-Kulka
Catherine E Snow
Description:

This volume provides a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the contribution of multiparty intergenerational talk in a variety of cultures to the development of children's communicative capacities. The book focuses on the complexity of the cultural and interactional contexts in which pragmatic learning occurs and re-examines certain assumptions implicit in research on language socialization to date, such as primacy of dyadic interactions in the early ages and the presupposition of a monolingual social matrix.
