German: Child Language Survey. Collected Transcripts of Recordings Made in Heidelberg, Berlin, Hanover and Urach/Wurtt.
Wybraniec, Ania, Ed.
Nine transcripts of recorded conversation of German children ranging from 10 through 19 years of age are of special interest to linguists working on child language. The recordings, made in Heidelberg, Berlin, Hanover, and Urach/Wurttemberg, include elicited behaviors called "linguistic activities". The interviewers attempt to elicit: (1) expressing intentions, (2) making comparisons, (3) telling someone how to do something, (4) giving reasons, and (5) making predictions. Direct questions, indirect questions, and use of pictures and photographs constitute the essential methodology employed in elicitation. Transcriptions are coded to indicate change of speaker. A detailed commentary of the project and of its objective is included. (RL)
