Meeting Description:

This bootcamp/workshop is a hands-on introduction to quantitative corpus linguistics for both graduate students and seasoned researchers. Using the open source software tool and programming language R, participants will learn

- How to generate frequency lists;
- How to search for words and patterns;
- How to handle corpora and perform corpus-linguistic searches in ways that typical corpus software does not support;
- How to carry out basic statistical evaluations of corpus data (significance tests and statistical graphs).

Data to be dealt with include plain text corpora, corpora with SGML or XML annotation, chat files from CHILDES, Unicode files. Case studies involve examples from morphology, syntax, semantics, first and second language acquisition, among other things. Statistical tests to be introduced include tests for frequencies, means, and distributions.
