%A Francisco Lacerda %A Ellen Marklund %A Lisa Lagerkvist %A Lisa Gustavsson %A Eeva Klintfors %A Ulla Sundberg %T On the linguistic implications of context-bound adult-infant interactions %X This poster presents a study of the linguistic information potentially available in adult speech directed to 3-month-old infants. The repetitive nature of the speech directed to young infants and the ecological context of the adult-infant natural interaction setting are analyzed in the light of the ?Ecological theory of language acquisition? proposed by Lacerda et al. (2004, this volume). The analysis of transcripts of adult-infant interaction sessions suggests that enough information to derive general noun associations may be available as a consequence of the particular context of the adult-infant interactions during the early stages of the language acquisition process. %K adult-infant interaction, ecological language acquisition, infant-directed speech, linguistic analysis %P 149-150 %E Luc Berthouze %E Hideki Kozima %E Christopher G.
