Project Description

The corpus was collected between 1999 and 2000 and it is composed by data of two children from Morocco learning Spanish in Spain. Both of them have just arrived in Spain when data were beginning to be collected. They speak Moroccan Arabic and they have been in contact with French.

Rachida (F)
Date of birth: 1988-04-20
Age range: 10;9.06-12;00.26
Sessions: 24

Khalid (M)
Date of birth: 1992-03-20
Age range: 6;10.6-8;01.26

The children were audio-recorded every two weeks in their school. There is a time lapse of four months between interviews 11 and 12 because of Summer holidays.

The author of this corpus will be happy to provide researchers who want to use this corpus with a coded version that includes morphological codes developed by the author.
