The aim of the present study is to explore the form and function of clarification request sequences in interaction involving children with cochlear implants. Clarification request sequences are investigated in everyday interaction, and it is demonstrated that children with CI use both general/open and specific requests for clarification. It is also shown that there is relatively lower frequency of requests for clarification in interactions involving children with CI with high intelligibility scores. The results may be useful in clinical assessment and intervention demonstrating the importance of assessing interactional ability in everyday interaction.
