My new book, Statistics for Linguists: An Introduction Using R is scheduled to come out on Nov 15. You can already pre-order it on Amazon (US, UK, DE)!
The market for statistics textbooks is crowded, so what's special about this one?
The book's explanations have evolved in response to extensive feedback from dozens of statistics workshops that I have taught. So I hope that they are clear and engaging!
Who is the book for?
I hope the book is useful for advanced undergraduates, but also MA and PhD students. And even experienced researchers and data analysts may find some helpful ideas in the way I approach some of the concepts looked at. The book is designed to work as a first introduction to statistics and R and should prove valuable for statistics courses.
Incidentally, this is my first-ever blog post. Watch this space or follow me on Twitter (@BodoWinter) for updates on new posts. I plan to write about academia (such as my experience as a General Editor at Language & Cognition), stats (including hands-on tutorials), and linguistics/cogsci topics such as gesture, iconicity, and sensory language.
If this is not on your radar yet, join us in the buzzing city of Birmingham for the UK Cognitive Linguistics conference to participate in this exciting interdisciplinary feast of language and cognition research!
