Summary of the paper

Title Corpus for Children’s Writing with Enhanced Output for Specific Spelling Patterns (2nd and 3rd Grade)
Authors Kay Berkling
Abstract This paper describes the collection of the H1 Corpus of children's weekly writing over the course of 3 months in 2nd and 3rd grades, aged 7-11. The texts were collected within the normal classroom setting by the teacher. Texts of children whose parents signed the permission to donate the texts to science were collected and transcribed. The corpus consists of the elicitation techniques, an overview of the data collected and the transcriptions of the texts both with and without spelling errors, aligned on a word by word basis, as well as the scanned in texts. The corpus is available for research via Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC). Researchers are strongly encouraged to make additional annotations and improvements and return it to the public domain via LDC.
