Dates: 25-Sep-2018 - 27-Sep-2018
Location: Thessaloniki, Greece

Focus: SECL II's sessions will include a) practice to design off-line and on-line linguistic experiments, b) programming practice for corpus construction and data manipulation and analysis (using XML and R) and c) practical introduction to statistical modelling of linguistic data (e.g. mixed effects models using R). For both experimental and corpus linguistic sessions, data sets from real studies will be used and analysed.
Minimum Education Level: PhD

Description:
After last year's success of SECL, this year our school expands to include a three-day compact course on experimental and corpus linguistics. The participants will acquire the necessary knowledge to handle corpora and experimental data sets for research and teaching purposes. The sessions will involve lectures and lab practice. Sessions will include a) practice to design off-line and on-line linguistic experiments, b) programming practice for corpus construction and data manipulation and analysis (using XML and R) and c) practical introduction to statistical modelling of linguistic data (e.g. mixed effects models using R). For both experimental and corpus linguistic sessions, data sets from real studies will be used and analysed.

No prior knowledge of programming or software tools for experimental linguistics is required. However, before entering the school, applicants are expected to have already gone over each course's literature list and practice tasks (to be announced in the schedule section). The instruction will be carried out in English. Participants will also receive a Certificate of Completion.
