Project Description

This directory consists of 16 files of cross-sectional data of children aged 2;9 to 6;6 donated to the CHILDES by Virginia Gathercole in 1987. There are four children at each age. These four children were observed at school while eating lunch with an experimenter present on four separate occasions. The files are named by date of collection. Dr. Gathercole would like those researchers requesting the data to contact her to discuss the use of the data. The following is a list of the target participants in these files by age:
