In studies of the moral development of children the focus obviously is on the interaction between children. However, research in which the language involved is systematically explored is scarce and fragmented. The main aim of the project is to fill this gap. The project analyses whether the model of Brown & Levinson (1987) of politeness strategies can be used as a broader framework. In this article the focus is on one component of this model relating to the language of togetherness. The research is a longitudinal case study of one child in his interactions in a day-care centre and an after school centre. The data in this report concern the whole group of children in the first and the last recordings.
