Corpus Description

Data were collected between December 2015 and September 2017 in Eugene/Springfield, Oregon. We aimed to collect three full daylong recordings within one week for each of 35 infants ages 6-12 months old. Recordings are organized into the following subsets, noted in the Recordings Subset column of the metadata spreadsheet.

  1. Trio Full: at least 10 hours total recorded and at least 4 hours continuously recorded, for each of three days within one week. In the completed study, 35 families contributed to TrioFull. 28 of these families consented to share their recordings; data from the other TrioFull families remain private in the UO Learning Lab.
  2. Trio Else: Many families participated but did not contribute three full days. Some recordings were coded for the presence of music. These files are noted in the Recordings Music column.

We are sharing audio files, and not ITS file or transcripts, at this time.

More information about the music project associated with this subset can be found on Open Science Framework (link to be added upon accepted manuscripts). Please note that we are sharing only recordings that parents consented to share with other researchers -- other recordings remain private, in the UO Learning Lab.

This project was partially supported by the GRAMMY Foundation and by the University of Oregon.
