We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Is there a table available for symbol conversions of the type:
''umlaut ''u'' in German can be written as ''ue''''?

I would need this for all languages.

Subject:  Q: Babbling corpora

On behalf of a student, I'm looking for readily available (preferably
transcribed) corpora of infant babbling.  She is hoping to compare
babbling in (Saudi) Arabic and English, but we're interested in
finding whatever babbling data we can for comparison.

Looking through the CHILDES database handbook, the children involved
tend not to be recorded until at least over one year old and often not
until later.  Since my student is interested in looking at younger
children, we've not noticed anything appropriate there, but it could
be that we're overlooking something or that there's babbling info in
more recent additions to the database.  So if you'd like to suggest
the CHILDES database, we'd appreciate it if you could point out which
data sets in particular have a lot of babbling data.

Best wishes,

Lynne Murphy
