Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Statistics in Language Research
Subtitle: Analysis of Variance
Written By: Toni Rietvald
Roeland van Hout
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-3110185806-1&l=E
Description:

Statistics in Language Research gives a non-technical but more or less
complete treatment of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) for language researchers.

This TEXTBOOK offers a thorough introduction to the basic principles of
analysis of variance, based on examples taken from language research, and
goes beyond the conventional topics treated in introductory textbooks, as
it covers topics like 'violations of assumptions', 'missing data',
'problems in repeated measures designs', 'alternatives to analysis of
variance' (such as randomization tests and multilevel analysis). Each
chapter consists of four sections: treatment of the subject under
discussion, a summary of relevant terms and concepts, a section devoted to
reporting statistics, and finally an exercise section. After the first
introductory chapter, in which fundamental concepts like 'variables',
'cases' and SPSS data formats are presented, the book continues with two
'refreshment' chapters, in which the principles of statistical testing are
revised, focusing on the well-known t test. These chapters also deal with
the essential, but often neglected concepts of 'statistical power' and
'sample size'. In every chapter examples of SPSS input and output are given.

ANOVA is the most frequently used technique when handling the outcomes of
research designs with more than two treatments or groups. This technique is
used in all parts of linguistics which deal with observations obtained in
survey studies and in (quasi-)experimental research, like applied
linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, language and speech
pathology and phonetics. Most statistical textbooks in the social sciences
take examples typical of their own field and, in addition, omit subjects
which are particularly relevant for language researchers, like power
analysis, quasi F, F1, F2 and minF'.

TONI RIETVELD is Professor of Methodology of Research in Language and
Speech Pathology at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
ROELAND VAN HOUT is Professor of Applied Linguistics, Sociolinguistics and
Dialectology at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Of interest to: Teachers and Advanced Students (with a Basic Knowledge of
Statistics) of Applied Linguistics and Related Fields (Sociolinguistics,
