General Competences
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Make decisions
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team

Course Content (Syllabus)
Conducting lingusitic research and formulating research questions are two tasks closely related to the usage of language data analysis methods. Throughout the semester students will get to know on these methods using state-of-the-art computational tools broadly used in the linguistic research community, such as the programming language R and other software of text processing and analysis such as Antconc and UAM Corpus Tool. To this end, students will also get acquainted with corpora and the two stages of processing and analysing them: a) data preprocessing and data wrangling and b) selection of the right statistical test or modeling method for answering specific types of research questions.

Description
Students will submit a report with a language data analysis on the basis of a specific research question. They are expected to use most of the language data analysis methods taught throughout the semester and will also use the programming language R. Their reports will be written on a specialised mark-up language, called RMarkdown.
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Assignment (Formative, Summative)
  • Written Exam with Problem Solving (Formative, Summative)
  • Labortatory Assignment (Formative)
