My new book, is scheduled to come out on Nov 15. You can already pre-order it on Amazon (Statistics for Linguists: An Introduction Using RUS, UK, DE)!The market for statistics textbooks is crowded, so what's special about this one? - The book is written in an accessible and friendly style, similar to my
**mixed model tutorials**. - There are lots of hands-on examples with real data from actual studies. These examples do not require special linguistic knowledge, which makes the book accessible to many different types of researchers, especially psychologists and cognitive scientists.
- Everything is based on the linear model framework.
- The book encourages the adoption of open reproducible research methods.
- The R code is written in
**tidyverse**style. - Each R function is explained in detail.
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. New blog!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.Conference!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!

Thanks for your kind words! Check it out! I think the examples are accessible to a very wide audience, including public health. I deliberately chose examples that are easy to understand.

I've been using your pdfs (regression and lmms) in my stat course for a few years now with great pleasure. I just purchased your new stat book in paperback with the hope of using it in my course. I like the book but there are missing figures and other oddities. For instance the on Page 83, the book refers to Figure 4.9 but no such figure exists. Other places refer to color such as 'salmon' but there are no colors (probably not surprisingly). Is my book flawed? Will there be a second printing?

So in section 8.2 in your book (categorical * continuous interactions). you mean center SER but you don't mean center POS. I've always done both to remove correlation of main effects from the interaction term. I reran the analyses. I first made POS a factor and specified contr.treatment. I get identical estimates and values to the ones you report. I then changed POS to contr.sump and the p values and estimate for SER change quite a bit (much more sig). The values for POS and the interaction don't change. I think you need to mean center both to get the correct main effects.

Dear Mr. Winter, I'm a student in linguistics learning statistics and R. Your book is very helpfull, thanks a lot for your great work - I get used to R! The 1st 6 chapters were a content of a statistics course in the uni, now I'm working thru the material alone. I have a question to the chapter 8: how is the graphics 8.4a built? I made 3 predictions for ARC_z =-1.5, 0, 1.5 and can plot fitted lines for every case, but how put them together?
