Below are three fragments of conversation between Lara, a child (C), and an adult (A).

The fragments come from three different recordings made at different ages of the child.

Can you put them in chronological order starting with the one you think was produced

when the child was youngest (e.g., Transcript X, Transcript Z, Transcript T)? Say which

stage the child is in for each one, and what the evidence is for your chronological order

(e.g., "Transcript T - the child is in the later multiword stage; all utterances are either

completely or almost adult like").
