Project Description

This corpus contains 74 files with 30911 child utterances, recorded between ages 1;7 and 3;1.13. Sixty of these files (2;0.1-2;1.12 and 3;0.0-3;1.13) were recorded and transcribed with support from the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig. Andreas (also called Antsu) is a firstborn Estonian-speaking child growing up in Tartu, Estonia. He was born on February 26, 1998. He can be called an early talker. Antsu is a very talkative and active boy. His father was working in construction materials supply and his mother was a student of linguistics. Andreas started to attend nursery school before the period of data collection, at the age of 1;6. The recordings were mainly carried out at home, where the child was playing with his mother and/or father. Meal time and other home activities were included. The recording sessions lasted 45-60 minutes each.
