CHILDES CHILDES Corpora

This page provides an index to CHILDES corpora, organized by language group and data type.

Corpora that focus on early child phonology can be found at the PhonBank site . The majority of PhonBank corpora contain transcriptions of child productions without inclusion of the overall conversation. However, there are six PhonBank corpora (Davis, Lyon, Paris, Providence, Yamaguchi, and WeistJarosz) that have full transcriptions. Those corpora are included here in the CHILDES database and their transcriptions in Phon format can be found at the PhonBank website.
