Meeting URL: http://www.linguistics.ucsb.edu/faculty/stgries/teaching/bootcamp/index.html

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; General Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

This bootcamp/workshop is a hands-on introduction to quantitative corpus
linguistics for both graduate students and seasoned researchers. Using the
open source software tool and programming language R, participants will learn

- how to generate frequency lists;
- how to search for words and patterns;
- how to handle corpora and perform corpus-linguistic searches in ways that
typical corpus software does not support;
- how to carry out basic statistical evaluations of corpus data
(significance tests and statistical graphs).

Data to be dealt with include plain text corpora, corpora with SGML or XML
annotation, chat files from CHILDES, Unicode files. Case studies involve
examples from morphology, syntax, semantics, first and second language
acquisition, among other things. Statistical tests to be introduced include
tests for frequencies, means, and distributions. For more information on
scheduling, accommodation, pricing, etc., please go to the meeting ULR at
