The recordings were part of the Leonard and COLAJE projects coordinated by Prof. Aliyah Morgenstern. The participant in these projects was recorded in his home in a naturalistic setting, for one hour every month. Adrien was recorded from in 26 sessions from age 1;11.14 to 4;3.27 by the author, who is also a friend of the child’s family.
During the recordings the child typically looked at picture books and played with toys with one of his parents, and sometimes bathing times were recorded; there were no instructions given as to word elicitation to the parents.
The video recordings were made using a Sony HDV 1080i/mini DV camera, and the audio recordings were made using a wireless microphone (Sennheiser, EW 112-p G2) worn by the child. The tapes were digitized using iMovie.
