What is this?
I gave a tutorial on empirical methods in phonology in Taiwan in April
of 2007. These links were so that participants who intended to use their
own laptops could download materials for the workshop in advance. I
maintain the links to supplement the written version of the talk.
Some of the downloads are large and some of the software takes some set-up
and/or time to become familiar with it.
Some of these links overlap with links on the conference
(This page was last updated on June 30, 2010.)
Necessary things for the tutorial
These all need to be downloaded.
(For Windows, this
means right-click and save. For Mac, control-click and save.)
- Zipped columnized version of the Brown corpus
(updated: March 31)
- Summary of nasal-oral by syllables data
- First data set
- Second data set
- Third data set
- R: free statistical software
(Follow the links to download and install the appropriate binary
for Windows, Mac, or Unix.)
- Tip sheet for R and the command-line
- Code for running the first web-based
- Code for emailing responses
to the web-based experiment to the experimenter.
- Code for running the first experiment
using Linger, PsyScope X, and PsyScript.
Optional things or other interesting links
- Conference web page
- My homepage
- |stat Another
free statistical software package. Note that the software
runs on any architecture. There are ready-to-run versions of the software
at this site for Windows machines. For Linux and Mac OS X, the software
must be compiled and the programmer must be emailed to get his permission
to obtain the source. Compiling requires the usual tools, e.g. gcc, make,
etc. In addition, installation under OS X requires some tweaks of the
source code as described on the website.
- Sample CGI script for on-line versions of
the experiments above.
interface to newdic dictionary. (Note that if you are intending to
use your laptop at the tutorial, you need to download the dictionary from
the link above.)
- There are several ways of getting unix-style
wc, etc. with Windows: UnxUtils, Cygwin, Mingw.
- Mary Beckman reminded me that you can do grep on Windows
within R. Here's a little script
she has graciously provided showing how to do this.
