Project Description

This directory contains the transcripts from the single Spanish-speaking child in the Serra / Solé longitudinal study of 10 children. In the larger study, five children are monolingual Catalan, four are bilingual Catalan-Spanish, and one is monolingual Spanish. The Spanish speaking-child, Eduard, was videotaped from 1;4 to 3;10 from 1986 to 1989. He was videotaped at his homes in spontaneous interaction with his mother, in sessions of 30 to 45 minutes. The family was middle-class.

The times for the recording of the 11 files from Eduard are as follows:
10-14.cha (1;4,8)
10-15.cha (1;5,16)
10-16.cha (1;7,15)
10-17.cha (1;9,19)
10-18.cha (2;0,30)
10-19.cha (2;3,4)
10-20.cha (2;4,28)
