David Sankoff's VARBRUL computer program is widely used in analyzing
linguistic variation in sociolinguistics, language acquisition,
discourse, and other areas of linguistics, yet researchers have had to
depend on hard-to-find publications and one-on-one training in order
to learn how to use the program. For the first time, this
comprehensive guide explains every aspect of this singularly useful
computer program, from its most basic statistical foundations, to data
collection, coding, and analysis techniques. This is written with
researchers and students in the field of linguistics in mind and
assumes no prior familiarity with statistics. Statistical and
methodological issues are illustrated with examples of linguistic
variation research, and their bearing on issues of theoretical
consequence is thoroughly discussed. All quantitative areas of
linguistics will benefit from this book's careful presentation of
VARBRUL analysis and its relation to other statistical procedures used
in the social sciences.
