Example text

This capacity to anticipate is certainly exploited by both these parents to encourage the infant to look forward to an item which is to come later in the book, but the capacity itself is, of course, not necessarily contingent upon language. 4 From around 6 to 8 months, all babies play games involving losing something and finding it again. Peekaboo, the game where an adult hides their face and then suddenly reappears, is an activity known to engage all children, and of which hide-and-seek and hunt-the-thimble are more sophisticated variations (Bruner 1983:47).

What are the discourse functions involved? There are, I believe, two main ones, and in both cases, communicative sequences involving acts of looking on the part of Rhys and Ceri evolve, and transform themselves into a kind of proto-dialogue structure. It begins to seem as if the movement of looking in the infant is interpreted by the adult as a deliberate communicative act. Consider the sequence ‘infant looks–parent talks’. Here, an act of looking on the part of the infant may be construed as an initiative, which elicits a verbal response on the part of the adult interlocutor.

At the beginning, however, the children’s relationship with the book, and their interactive relationship with the reading adult are apparently fostered as a priority. 1 Labelling in theory Having focused thus far on infant behaviour, how Rhys and Ceri are encouraged to look at their book and take part in a structured exchange with the adult, attention is now turned to what they are invited to listen to. The adult language of early picturebook reading has often been evaluated in terms of its capacity to promote lexical acquisition in the infant.
