What is a representative language sample for word and sound acquisition?

Abstract : Naturalistic data are a useful source for language acquisition research. Recently, the importance of denser corpora has been emphasized in order to capture an accurate picture of child language development. However, working with large amount of data raises resources issues, since it is time-consuming to record and to transcribe. In this article, we focus on the "ideal" duration of a naturalistic recording in order to be considered as a representative sample of children's linguistic behaviors to observe the acquisition of words and sounds. In conclusion, we suggest that 30 minutes of recording may be enough to capture these specific developments.
