Project Description

Recordings for this study were gathered from a picture-naming task (99 different word stimuli), the PLAKSS-II-Lux, a Luxembourgish adaptation of the PLAKSS-II, (Fox-Boyer & Zeyen, 2019) which covers all consonants, vowels and consonant clusters of Luxembourgish phonotactics. It also includes words of different word length and stress pattern.

The recordings were collected in three nurseries (Kindergarten) in the communities of Walferdange, Steinsel and Mersch. All children spoke standard Luxembourgish. Four children grew up either bilingual or trilingual: 1002: English; 2008: Spanish/French; 3024: Zarma (Niger) and 3028: Portuguese/Cape Verdean Creole. However, also for these children Luxembourgish was the dominant L1. The aim of the BSc-project (Bracci, 2018) was to assess the phonological processes of mono- and multilingual pre-school learners of Luxembourgish. Ages of the participating children ranged from 3;0 to 4;5. The time of the assessments ranged between 15 and 45 minutes. Recording were made on a laptop via Audacity.
