UCoM has two on-going longitudinal case studies involving weekly recording of children growing up with three languages: English, which is the language of the community and nursery and the shared language between the parents; Italian, which is the language of the mother; and Scottish Gaelic, which is the language of the father.
This child has been recorded since 2009 when she was 2 years and 2 months. The child, now in primary school, is proficient in all of her three languages. The leader of the project is Megan Devlin who is writing her PhD thesis on the effect of the child's other two languages, Italian and Scottish Gaelic, on her acquisition of English. Project 'S' has contributed a corpus of transcribed data to the Childes databaseh
