Collective monologues are egocentric exchanges between two (2) or more children with participants talking "with" one another, but not necessarily "to" one another, such that what one child says has little to do with the comments of the other. Collective monologue is a type of pseudo-conversation engaged in by pre-school children. The children take turns speaking, but each speaker's contribution to the conversation has little to do with the content of what other speakers are saying.
