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

Meeting Description:

Local organizer: Stefanie Wulff
(http://www.lingtechcomm.unt.edu/~swulff/index.html)
Instructor: Stefan Th. Gries
(http://www.linguistics.ucsb.edu/faculty/stgries/index.html)

This bootcamp/workshop is an approximately 30-hrs hands-on introduction to statistical methods for both graduate students and seasoned researchers. Using the open source software and programming language R, we will

- briefly recap basic aspects of statistical evaluation as well as several descriptive statistics;
- discuss a variety of monofactorial statistical tests;
- explore different kinds of multifactorial and multivariate methods, in particular different kinds of regression approaches, principal components, and
cluster analysis.

For all statistical methods to be explored, we will also discuss how to test their assumptions and visualize their results, and sometimes we will reanalyze published data from corpus-linguistic studies. Also, there will be a small section on how to write small statistical/visualization functions yourself. The boot camp will be, in part, based on Gries (2009, http://www.linguistics.ucsb.edu/faculty/stgries/research/sflwr/sflwr.html) but go beyond it in terms of the methods and datasets covered.

For more information on scheduling, accommodation, pricing, the instructor, etc., please go to the bootcamp URL.
