This collection contains the data and analysis scripts for Evan Kidd’s journal archive project, assessing the last 45 years of research published in the four main child language acquisition journals in terms of several variables, including (1) participant group (mono vs multilingual), (2) language(s), (3) topic(s) and (4) country of author affiliation, from each journal’s inception until the end of 2020.

An analysis of child-directed speech behaviors in the Nijmegen Rulkens-Dijkstra corpus.
The Nijmegen-Dijkstra-Corpus was collected within a multi-methodological longitudinal cohort study (called ‘Universal constraints?’) that tracked the language development of 56 Dutch-learning children from 8 months to 46 months (2009 to 2013). The project was supported and funded by CLS, and aimed to track place of articulation patterns in perception and production from the stage of universal listeners to the stage of language-specific listeners and language producers.

This collection contains one sub-collection for each of the four studies of Katja Stärk's PhD thesis: (1) a corpus analysis of word segmentation cues in German, (2+3) two experimental studies investigating the effect of prior knowledge of transitional probabilities on adults' and children's auditory statistical learning of linguistic material, and (4) another experimental study investigating the combined influence of a Zipfian frequency distribution and prior knowledge of transitional probabilities on adults' auditory statistical learning of linguistic material.

One-hour recordings of interactions between 20 Tagalog-speaking 2;0-4;0 children and their guardians (child language corpus), and 5 different groups/pairs of Tagalog-speaking adults (adult language corpus).

This collection contains a sub-collection for each project of Melis Çetinçelik PhD dissertation: (1) a systematic review on the role of eye gaze in early language development, (2) an EEG study investigating the effects of the speaker’s gaze on infants’ ERP word segmentation, (3) an EEG study investigating the effects of the speaker’s gaze on infants’ ERP neural tracking of speech, and (4) an EEG study investigating the effects of visual speech cues on infants’ ERP neural tracking of speech.
