Abstract and Keywords
This chapter provides a description of the software tools available through the PhonBank initiative within CHILDES for corpus-based research on phonological development as well as for data sharing. It begins by situating CHILDES and PhonBank within the larger TalkBank database project, and discussing issues affecting both the development of phonological corpora and the central question of data sharing. It then focuses more specifically on Phon, the software program developed within PhonBank to support the needs specific to research on phonetics, phonology, language acquisition and speech disorders. This description highlights the main corpus building and data compilation functions supported by Phon, for example concerning software-assisted IPA transcription and the systematic comparison of actual phonetic forms against their intended targets.
Dr. Yvan Rose is currently Associate Professor of Linguistics at Memorial University and co-director of the PhonBank Project within CHILDES. He received his Ph.D. in Linguistics from McGill University. His research concentrates on the nature of phonological representations and of their acquisition by young children. He investigates these questions through software-assisted methods, implemented in the Phon program for the analysis of transcript data on phonology and phonological development.
Dr. Brian MacWhinney, Professor of Psychology, Computational Linguistics, and Modern Languages at Carnegie Mellon University, has developed a model of first and second language acquisition and processing called the Competition Model which he has also applied to aphasia and fMRI studies of children with focal lesions. He has also developed the CHILDES Project for the computational study of child language transcript data, the TalkBank system for the study of conversational interactions, AphasiaBank for the study of aphasia, and the E-Prime and PsyScope programs.
