Mathematical Models in the Study of Language

The statistics workshop from IAP will continue meeting every two weeks this semester. The plan is to meet at 12:10 on non-colloquium Fridays. Participants alternate in presenting a mathematical model and showing how to analyze some interesting linguistic data with it. Models we will be covering this semester include: Correlation, Regression, Logistic Regression, Mixed Models, Bootstrapping, ANOVA, MANOVA, ANCOVA and many more. (The agenda is open to suggestions.)

The first meeting will be Friday, February 22 at 12:10, in the phonetics lab (32-D958). Adam Albright will present Pearson and Spearman correlations, and how to do them in R.
