Introduction: This post exemplifies a data-Slice created with a literal-string-search. By way of explanation: this archive involves an infant language study. “Culdy” was the pet name by which the child referred to the family dog. This search extracts all the references to the string “Culdy” in the corpus.

comments or questions: How is such a facility useful? The analyst might want to locate all occurrences of this literal string for contrast with its variations, such as “culdi,” “culdah”, and the dog’s common name “Scurry,” to detail the usage timeline in exploring how the infant’s idiosyncratic languages was regularized through social processes.
