Newton, D. P. and Newton, L. D. (2001) 'Subject content knowledge and teacher talk in the primary science classroom.', European journal of teacher education., 24 (3). pp. 369-379.

Observations of 50 British elementary science teachers and comparison of the oral discourse of teachers with and without significant science background indicated that those with a science background asked more subject-relevant and causal questions.
