VP-Kids v.1.2         [See lists ]       [Get random kid-list selections here ]    
Classic or BNC/COCA versions of VP are weak at identifying lexical growth in young children (Horst & Collins, 2006) so this dedicated profiler was developed (by Roessingh & Cobb, 2008) to match transcribed child language against ten 250-word lemma lists generalized from several empirical studies of oral productions (Murphy, 1957; Johnson, 1971; Hopkins, 1979; Moe et al, 1982) by Stemach & Williams.
