Corpus Description

This corpus was collected as a means of comparing the language experiences of 1 and 2 year olds across different childcare settings (i.e., at home, in a home-based daycare, or in a childcare centre. Because the corpus was collected prior to the advent of HomeBank, and due to the difficulty in collecting consent to share from/for all of the children, teachers and parents involved, only a small subset of the home-based recordings are donated to HomeBank. The full dataset is available upon request for collaborative analyses.


This corpus was collected with the help of a large number of RAs at the Baby Language Lab, including, but not limited to, Kristene Cheung, Joanna Bhaskaran, Dana Bernier, Jamie McDonald, Madeleine Simon and Elizabeth Grauer.
