Abstract

The structure of contingent query sequences within adult-child discourse was examined. The children, aged i; 11-3;o in language stages I—III, demonstrated basic knowledge of the contingent query. Implications for conceptualizations of the young child's communicative competence and for theoretical formulations of the query sequence itself are discussed.
