Abstract: Metalanguage, talking about talk or talk about text, is a heightened awareness of language, and how language functions in a socio-cultural setting. Using video and audio data from 20 Spanish-speaking families in a marine science center in north-central California, we describe our system for identifying metalanguage in dialogue as families visit the science museum. Our goal is to understand ways in which metalinguistic practice contributes to meaning making around biological concepts.
