Statistics for Experimental Linguists

when 25 August 2014 - 29 August 2014
duration 1 week
fee EUR 350

This crash course is meant as a basic introduction to statistical treatment of experimental data. Attention will be given to description of data, and to basic ideas such as sampling, chance levels and hypothesis testing. Furthermore, the question of how to design an experiment that might prove/disprove your theory will be discussed. The programme is rather ambitious, so students should prepare the assigned chapters of the Statistics book before coming to class. In class, the material will be discussed and we will go into some of the exercises.
