Meeting Description: This workshop is a 25-hour introduction to statistics for researchers and graduate students in linguistics, held at the University of Mississippi in Oxford. The workshop will be led by Stefan Gries and is a slightly shorter version of the statistics bootcamp that he has conducted elsewhere. We will cover the following topics:

- basics of statistical thinking
- basic data manipulation with R (loading and processing)
- selected monofactorial tests
- linear modeling (regression and AN(C)OVA)
- binary logistic regression (for multifactorial linguistic variation)
- graphs and other visual presentations of results

The fee for this four-day workshop is $300, including coffee and lunch each day. Participation is limited to 10 attendees, so to reserve your space in the workshop, please contact with your name, contact information, departmental affiliation, and areas of research interest.
