Gaeltacht Corpus (CHILDES database)



The Gaeltacht Corpus consists of data of one native Irish-speaking family from the west coast of Ireland. The target child (Eoin) was being raised as a first language speaker of Irish. At the time of the study, Eoin was the younger of two children and aged 1;5 at the onset of recording. Eoin's mother was a native speaker of Irish and his father had native-like proficiency. Irish was the language of the home and consequently Eoin's first language. The members of his extended family living in the neighborhood were also native speakers of Irish. The project followed Eoin over the period of one year and aimed to collect one hour of recording every week.
