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.

Lingfield(s):	Language Acquisition 

Written In: English (Language Code: English)
