childhood language environment; Source: UCU Accents Database; data element name

PID: http://www.isocat.org/datcat/DC-5721

Identifier: childhoodLanguageEnvironment   Type: complex/open   Origin:    Profile: Metadata

Definition: This variable describes the extent (e.g. yes, occasionally, no) to which the participant under consideration has been in contact with the language under consideration before he or she was 8 years old, as the language was used in the environment of the participant at that time.
Source: LUCEA

Example: yes, no, occasionally, seldom
Source: LUCEA

Explanation: Participants may have been in contact with a language during childhood, without having acquired or learned that language during childhood. This variable captures the intensity of such language contact during childhood. As example 1, consider the grandmother of a participant who spoke the (grandmother's) heritage language, even though the participant has not acquired or learned that heritage language. This may be captured as the language being used "occasionally" in the environment of the participant; the actual description depends on the reported intensity of the grandmother~participant contact. As example 2, consider a participant acquiring minority language X during childhood while news media were being broadcast/printed in majority language Y.

However, it may be relevant to those accessing the data to know that the literal answer indicated a dialect.

Definition: A boolean value indicating whether (true) or not (false) the participant under consideration acts as the interviewer during the recording, and thus whether or not the primary role of the participant is to facilitate the other participant(s) to speak.
Source:

Example: Example 1: A leads the interview and asks questions, B is parent, C is child of B, and C is being interviewed. A is primary facilitator. Example 2: A and B conduct the interview, with B taking the lead. C is participant being interviewed. B is primary facilitator. Example 3: A, B and C are three participants in open, free conversation. There is no interviewer guiding the conversation or asking questions. A, B and C all assume equal responsibility for the conversation. None of the participants is primary facilitator.
Source:

Explanation: In an event with facilitators and participants, for example, a spoken corpus, there may be more than one facilitator present. The main facilitator is the one with whom a participant primarily interacts.

The value cannot be higher than the age of the participant.
