The goal of the Acquisition Project is to record, transcribe, and enter into a computerized database, a corpus of naturalistic data from a large sample of Jakarta Indonesian child language.
A total of ten children were studied longitudinally over the course of four years. The children's ages at their first recordings ranged from 1:7 to 4:6, and each child was recorded at intervals of 7-10 days over a period of 2-4 years. In addition, data relating to each age group was used for latitudinal studies.
By the end of 2007, we plan to have the entire CHILDES database checked for quality control our research supervisors.
