Journal of Child Language, v19 n2 p435-58 Jun 1992
Presents four principles for archive-based language research: maximum readability and minimum bias; consistent encoding for exhaustive computer search; systematic contrastiveness; and data comparability in elicitation, transcription and coding. Examples from existing computer archives illustrate these and other principles, and strategies are suggested for minimizing detrimental effects of violations. (25 references) (GLR)
