Title: Analyzing Linguistic Data
Subtitle: A Practical Introduction to Statistics using R
Written By: Harald R. Baayen
Description:

Statistical analysis is a useful skill for linguists and psycholinguists,
allowing them to understand the quantitative structure of their data. This
textbook provides a straightforward introduction to the statistical
analysis of language. Designed for linguists with a non-mathematical
background, it clearly introduces the basic principles and methods of
statistical analysis, using 'R', the leading computational statistics
programme. The reader is guided step-by-step through a range of real data
sets, allowing them to analyse acoustic data, construct grammatical trees
for a variety of languages, quantify register variation in corpus
linguistics, and measure experimental data using state-of-the-art models.
The visualization of data plays a key role, both in the initial stages of
data exploration and later on when the reader is encouraged to criticize
various models. Containing over 40 exercises with model answers, this book
will be welcomed by all linguists wishing to learn more about working with
and presenting quantitative data.
