Guest Speaker: Prof. Anna Bączkowska, University of Gdansk
Prof. Anna Bączkowska, University of Gdansk, will talk about the CHILDES database, which is a repository of transcripts of conversations held among adults and children.The data illustrate developmental changes occurring in language acquisition in monolingual and bilingual children. Some corpus and NLP tools which allow one to extract material from the database as well as some statistical information available through different software programs will be demonstrated. Examples will be shown and analysed by resorting to the data of bilingual and multilingual children.
