Child-directed Text


This umbrella project has the broad goal of collecting and analyzing of American child-directed texts. Stage one of this project involves the collection and aggregation of child-directed texts in the form of a text corpus. The long-term goal is to analyze this text corpus for interesting aspects of semantics, phonology, and orthographic properties that could inform our understand of the early childhood literacy environment. In order to develop a high-quality corpus for such research, we will rely on a number of resources to validate the quality of the texts chosen for the corpus.
