Introduction to Statistics with R


Introduction to Statistics with R

This course introduces the participants to the basic logic underlying statistical description and analysis, teaches them how to compute and visualize descriptive statistics, and how to perform monofactorial statistical tests of linguistic data from both observational and experimental settings. The course will use the open source programming language and environment R and will be loosely based on Gries (2013), the second edition of my textbook 'Statistics for linguistics with R'.

Required textbook:
Statistics for Linguistics with R: A Practical Introduction by Stefan Gries (2013).
