Learning how to manage communication, with special reference to the acquisition of linguistic feedback
Department of Linguistics, University of Göteborg, Göteborg, Sweden.

Abstract [en]

This study has two parts. The first part gives a theoretical overview of what a child has to learn in order to manage communication, whereas the second part provides a longitudinal case study. The case study shows how a child, from the age of 1 year and 8 months to the age of 3 years and 3 months, learns how to use different means for interacting in order to make contextually relevant communicative contributions. We can see how such aspects of his communication as mean length of utterances (MLU), use of onomatopoeia, communicative gestures, and informative actions develop in interaction with each other. A more specific study of linguistic feedback (feedback morphemes and repetitions) shows the development in different activities of the use of feedback. The role of the linguistic feedback system in language acquisition is also discussed. ©1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
