Children with mental retardation participated in this study could at least structure sentences with two words and exhibit minimum of developmental language-age of three to four years. Ten mentally retarded children were matched with ten normal children. Conversational speech samples between the researcher and each child were collected. Dependent variables included turn-taking, initiation and response, repair and revision, interruption/overlap, and adjacency pairs. The results of the study showed that there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups in every dependent variable, except for a number of specifically appropriate situations.
