Description
This double course combines R programming/data science with basic techniques of quantitative linguistics and statistics. It is primarily designed for students of humanities with no background in programming and statistics. Students are guided through a selection of published linguistic studies with real data sets as well as working examples of code snippets, and they are being presented the analytical approaches along with the linguistic research topics in their own right. The classification is based on active participation in the classes and submitted home assignments. By courtesy of the DataCamp online course hub, all registered students enjoy full access to DataCamp premium content for six consecutive months in Summer Term 2016/2017, thanks to this special offer: https://www.datacamp.com/groups/education.
