Transcripts Part 1: A Research Question

This part is due MONDAY

Added clarifications in red!

For many years, people have recorded children's early speech. These transcripts are available for researchers to use to ask and answer questions about early language development. In this assignment you will come up with your own question about language development. In the next class your group will choose one question and find a way of answering it using the transcripts.

Again, make sure your question is specific enough so that that it can be answered from the data you have! Be prepared to discuss your question with your group on Monday.
