The following data files are the RAW DATA (not smoothed, etc., as described
in the paper) that the analyses in
Brent 2004 are based on.
*Within each row, each entry is the number of NEW words reported
each day for that child. We transformed this into a rate of new words
per day (calculated over a 9-day moving window) for the analyses reported in the paper.
*The x character is used to represent missing days. Note that x's are separated by spaces, while regular numerical entries are separated by tabs.
*Each child's data is on a new row. Each row is in REVERSE chronological order (i.e., the first entry represents the last day of data collection).
*In our analysis, the last 14 days of data are removed; those days ARE
INCLUDED in these raw data files.
*For reasons I don't understand now, there is one child included in the noun
analysis (Table 2) (child 204a) who was not in the first analysis (Table 1).
I think Table 2 should be a proper subset of Table 1, so I don't understand why
we did that. 204a is included in the second file below anyway, since that
reflects the data we used for the published analysis.
