Analyzing linguistic data : a practical introduction to statistics using R by R Harald Baayen
"This textbook provides a straightforward introduction to the statistical analysis of language data. It clearly introduces the basic principles and methods of statistical analysis, using R, the leading computational statistics programming environment. The reader is guided step-by-step through a range of real data sets, allowing them to analyze phonetic data, construct phylogenetic trees, quantify register variation in corpus linguistics, and analyze experimental data using state-of-the-art models. The visualization of data plays a key role, both in the early stages of data exploration and later on when the reader is encouraged to criticize initial models fitted to the data. Containing over forty exercises with model answers, this book will be welcomed by all linguists wishing to learn more about working with and presenting quantitative data."--Jacket.
