Here, we present the first prosodically annotated infant-directed speech corpus in German (KIDS Corpus) – a tool for formulating hypotheses and modeling acquisition processes in the prosodic domain and at the prosody-syntax interface. The multi-layered corpus consists of 524 intonation phrases (IPs) directed to infants younger than one year (196 IPs were extracted from the CHILDES database; 328 IPs were extracted from our own recordings). Pitch accents (n=832) and boundary tones (n=1048) were labeled according to GToBI. Furthermore, we annotated the presence of unaccented syllables and pitch targets before and after the accentual syllables. We also tagged the word-prosodic structure of accented words and the syntactic category of all words. In the database, 41% of the words carry a pitch accent. Within the corpus, most words are verbs, but the words that bear a pitch accent are most often nouns. The majority of phrases start and end in low boundary tones. The most frequent pitch accent types are H* and L+H*. The data are discussed in terms of elicitation settings and potential implications of distribution frequencies on first language acquisition mechanisms.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/44026"/> <dc:creator>Grijzenhout, Janet</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Braun, Bettina</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/44026/1/Zahner_2-17fb97t9jaf2k5.pdf"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Schönhuber, Muna</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schönhuber, Muna</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-11-27T10:54:12Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Braun, Bettina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Konstanz prosodically annotated infant-directed speech corpus (KIDS corpus)</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:contributor>Zahner, Katharina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-11-27T10:54:12Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Grijzenhout, Janet</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
