he University of Birmingham is organising its first “Statistics for Linguists” Summer School. Over the course of five days, participants will learn how to process and analyse data using the R programming language.
The summer school will be convened by Bodo Winter (University of Birmingham), Timo Roettger (Northwestern University) and Márton Sóskuthy (University of York). Additional optional sessions will be offered by our local staff of quantitative linguists, including Isobelle Clark, Matteo Fuoli, Jason Grafmiller, Jack Grieve, Michaela Mahlberg and Viola Wiegand.
We will provide a comprehensive overview of current statistical methods that are commonly used in linguistics and related fields. The ultimate goal is for participants to become competent users of these techniques and gain a better understanding of their own data.
