SUMMARY

This study followed up a preliminary investigation (Weiss, 2002) that substantiated the presence of recasts in the child-directed language repertoires of parents of school age CWS and CWNS. Further analyses demonstrated that parents of CWS varied in the types and frequencies of their recast productions. As a group, children’s utterances following their parents’ recasts were not more significantly likely to contain disfluencies and as a group the children’s utterances were less lengthy and complex than the average utterances in their samples. For individual parent-child dyads, however, the use of recasts by their parents yielded attempts at more complex syntactic structures.
