Thanks, Renee! The most interesting thing to us, I think, was with the increased response latency condition, when the children made it pretty clear that they thought their parents had sort of decided not to answer them. One of the important variables here is how long the delay time is -- there has been a lot of work in normal development and in other areas of speech-language pathology about speakers' assumptions about the temporal aspects of communication, and about their reactions when those assumptions are violated. It's an interesting area, in a lot of ways, that you might want to dig into for a research project while you're in grad school! Thanks for your question.
