Abstract

This study focuses on understanding four family's discourse during a typical daily dinnertime routine. The dinnertime context was used to video-tape and categorize four family's typical discourse and how each family member participates in the frequency of talking time. Specifically, children between the ages of three years six months and six years were observed as they negotiated, explained, asked questions and told stories of past and future events with their younger sibling and parents.
