>Does anyone have any idea how I might gain access to the CHILDES database?

This has been the topic of discussion earlier in another discussion list
called CORPORA, which is administered from the University of Bergen, Norway.
You can subscribe to CORPORA at CORPORAnora.hd.uib.no. (Be forewarned though,
that they are relatively new in the conferencing game, and have had some
trouble with distribution of mail - you sometimes get multiple copies of
contributions.

Anyway, the CHILDES base is available via ftp at poppy.psy.cmu.edu. Here
you can log into the main base via anonymous ftp and get some programs and
files for using and referencing the database. You can also get information
about the CHILDES database by e-mail, from childesandrew.cmu.edu.

The person responsible for CHILDES is Brian McWhinney.

Good luck
