Monolingual and bilingual phonoprosodic corpora of child German and child Spanish
This article describes two longitudinal language corpora of child German and child Spanish. One of the corpora, PAIDUS, is comprised of the utterances produced by monolingual German and monolingual Spanish children, between the ages of 1 and ca. 3 years. The German children grew up in Hamburg (Germany) and the Spanish children in Madrid (Spain). The other corpus, PhonBLA, is comprised of utterances produced by German-Spanish bilingual children, between the ages of 1 and ca. 7 years, growing up in Hamburg (Germany). The bilingual children have a Spanish-speaking mother and a German-speaking father. All corpora were collected, transcribed and analyzed within various research projects supported by the DFG, between 1986 and 2011. Several analyses of the data have been published in international journals and books (see References).
