Notice: Dear all,

I am Shaikha Al-Jaber from Qatar University, majoring in English Language. I am currently working on my graduation project which is on speech acts in 'Motherese'.

The problem is that I have got only one source regarding speech acts in Motherese, which is the following:

'Mothers in Dialogue: Some Discourse Features of Motherese with Normal and Language Impaired Children' done by Conti Martineze de Pinillos, Gina Maria.

I will be very thankful if anyone knows of any sources regarding speech acts in Motherese.
