Using child-language corpora to study language development

Speaker:
Barbora Skarabela (University of Edinburgh)
Abstract:
Conversational discourse plays an important role in children’s discovery of language and new words. Corpora of parent-child interactions have been instrumental in our understanding of how the linguistic information children are exposed to in early childhood may influence what and how they learn. In this talk, I’ll review some of the studies from our lab that build on this invaluable resource and show that while naturalistic spontaneous speech data provide a window into language development, experimental studies are often critical to clarify the developmental process and what children learn.
