Project Description

The recordings for this corpus were made in Leuven, Brabant, Belgium (3 children: Meinder, Judith, Laurien) and Antwerp, Belgium (1 child: David). The participants were recorded every two weeks from 8 months to 25 months of age. Each recording session lasted approximately 60 minutes. The team made recordings using a Panasonic Digital Video Camera (NV-GS180) and a Sennheiser ew100 microphone on 60 minute fuji Mini DVCassettes. The video files were later digitized to DVDs. During the recording sessions, the child interacted with his/her mother (or both parents) and a speech therapist and/or a master’s student of speech-language pathology was present.
