Featured course: Computational and Quantitative Approaches to Linguistics
Friday 3 February 2017

ANU linguistics students have an exciting opportunity to study this coming semester with several Postdoctoral Research Fellows from the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language.

Dr Danielle Barth, Dr Mark Ellison and Dr Matthew Spike will co-convene 'Computational and Quantitative Approaches to Linguistics'.

This course will expose students to a range of state-of-the-art computational and quantitative approaches to linguistics including Bayesian Statistics, Computational Phonetics, Formal Language Theory, Agent Based and Cognitive Modeling, Quantitative Corpus Linguistics and Recursive Partitioning. Students will be exposed to these approaches at a conceptual level and will receive guided practice to carry out a selection of methodologies in-class using the R programming language. Students don’t have to know programming, but will learn some over the course of the semester.

The course will be taught as a Special Topic under the course codes LING3025 (class #4815) and LING6525 (class #4816). Students interested in enrolling should see the 2017 Programs and Courses website for more information or contact one of the course conveners: danielle.barth@anu.edu.au, m.ellison@anu.edu.au or matthew.spike@anu.edu.au.
