Representatives of a number of clinical groups, similar to planetary scientists, astronomers, house physicists, chemists and astrobiologists have met with the purpose to check the data on 4 significant topics: (1) the research of the formation and evolution strategies of the outer planets and their satellites, starting with the formation of compounds and planetesimals within the sunlight nebula, and the following evolution of the interiors of the outer planets, (2) a comparative examine of the atmospheres of the outer planets and Titan, (3) the examine of the planetary magnetospheres and their interactions with the sunlight wind, and (4) the formation and houses of satellites and jewelry, together with their interiors, surfaces, and their interplay with the sunlight wind and the magnetospheres of the outer planets.

Lines 9-10). Part of the increased level of linguistic demand made on speakers in context-reduced situations may arise from the need to shape and organise longer stretches of discourse. The teachers, therefore, analysed their transcripts in terms of particular linguistic items used by their pupils in organising and sequencing facts and events. Analysis shows that time and time-sequence were significant for reporting the activity. In terms of organisation, therefore, the children had to be able to handle past tenses and to select and use appropriate ways of marking chronological sequence.

These tasks had been found to be less linguistically demanding than open-ended tasks, and helpful in giving access to the curriculum to early developing-bilingual pupils (Primary ESL, 1990a & b). Analysis of the boat-building activity chosen by the teachers in the gingerbread man activity seems to show that it was less 'closed' than the examples given above. However, although it was not repetitive in the same way, since the teachers allowed choice for the children to take their own path to the final objective, it is possible to identify features which may have been influenced by the demands and structure of the activity.

Page 11 Did they use identifiable strategies to gain access to understanding? If so, what were they? Because of the degree of linguistic demand made in listening to and interpreting the discourse, teachers were asked to note the extent to which they themselves tended towards a context-embedded form of communication during this stage, even though they were working with fluent speakers of English. In all 12 studies it had been agreed that this stage would incorporate a set of instructions which would be carried out by the children later, in stage 2.
