This is a case study of Taro, a first-born male child from the Nagoya area. Taro was born on 29-NOV-1996. He was observed two to three times a month from 2;2.3 to 3;4.22 with an additional final recording at 3;7. The observations took place at his home while playing with his mother and his younger brother Jiro. The sound data was computerized and linked to CHAT files (MacWhinney, 2000), but the audio files will not be made public. Furthermore, all names have been changed to pseudonyms. Transcription was done in Latin script in the main line (originally JCHAT 1.0 Hebon; Oshima-Takane & MacWhinney, 1995, following Wakachi98, Miyata & Naka, 1998; modified to Wakachi2002 by S. Miyata; Miyata, 2002) and Japanese script (Kana) in a dependent tier.
