Project Description

This directory contains 37 files collected by Dorit Ravid from her daughter Sivan between the ages of 1;8 and 6;10. The recordings were made between May 1980 and April 1985 Sivan (SIV), was a first-born female, born June 14, 1978. Her brother Asaf (ASA) was born July 30, 1979. The mother (MOT) is a linguist. The father (FAT) is Arik. The family lives in an apartment in a high rise building in a provincial town called Yahud in the center of Israel (Tel Aviv metropolitan area). Their mother is a (second generation) native Hebrew speaker, their father came to Israel as a small child, and the children were definitely monolingual Hebrew speakers throughout the period of the recordings. The family background and lifestyle is typical of well-educated, literate Israeli middle-class salaried professionals. The recordings were made by the mother when the children were playing at home in their bedroom or the living room — sometimes just the two of them, most of the time one or both of them with one or both of their parents, occasionally with (maternal) grandparents or with another child from the same neighborhood. Sivan, the older child, was linguistically highly precocious with an unusually developed metalinguistic feel for language, and in these recordings she did not often give her brother much floor space! Asaf was 0;9.16 in file 111a. There is not much speech from him until file 206b when he is 1;4:8.
