Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fifteen international specialists contribute 12 chapters analyzing the contribution of multiparty intergeneralization talk in a variety of cultures to the development of children's communicative capacities, and shedding new light on previously-held assumptions from earlier research on language socialization. Coverage includes opportunities to learn how to produce extended discourse, in family and peer settings; affective and nonliteral aspects of language use; and cultural differences in pragmatic development. The essays include descriptions of the characteristics of conversations in which young children were participants in several different countries, including Greece, Norway, Israel, North America, Sweden, Italy, and Mayan Mexico. For researchers in language development, but suitable as a supplemental text in graduate-level linguistics courses. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
