The goal of TalkBank is to foster fundamental research in the study of human and animal communication.
It will construct sample databases within each of the subfields studying communication. It will use
these databases to advance the development of standards and tools for creating, sharing, searching,
and commenting upon primary materials via networked computers.
TalkBank was funded from 1999 to 2004 by a grant from the
National Science Foundation (BCS-998009, KDI, SBE) to Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pennsylvania.
Subsequent funding came from an NSF ITR Grant 0324883 to CMU and Stanford for classroom video databases, an NSF grant for
Supreme Court oral arguments, and an NSF grant to the PIttsburgh Science of Learning Center for SLA work.
Current funding is from:
- NICHD grant HD082736 to Brian MacWhinney for CHILDES,
