Abstract:

Corpus research forms the backbone of research on children's language
development. Leading researchers in the field present a survey on the
history of data collection, different types of data, and the treatment of
methodological problems. Morphologically and syntactically parsed corpora
allow for the concise explorations of formal phenomena, the quick retrieval
of errors, and reliability checks. New probabilistic and connectionist
computations investigate how children integrate the multiple sources of
information available in the input, and new statistical methods compute
rates of acquisition as well as error rates dependent on sample size.
Sample analyses show how multi-modal corpora are used to investigate the
interaction of discourse and linguistic structure, how cross-linguistic
generalizations for acquisition can be formulated and tested, and how
individual variation can be explored. Finally, ways in which corpus
research interacts with computational linguistics and experimental research
are presented.
