Abstract:

Editor's Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

Presents a comprehensive introduction to analysing quantitative linguistic data.

Starting with an definition of quantitative data, and how it differs from qualitative data, Seb Rasinger examines what the student linguist is trying to find out through analysing data, and how quantitative techniques can help arrive at meaningful and accurate conclusions. This expanded, 2nd edition now also includes a discussion of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and MANOVA, and provides a brief introduction to statistical meta-analysis. A companion website allows readers to download crib sheets and Excel templates for the main statistical tools.

The book introduces: 
-using statistics
-variables
-reliability of data
-describing data
-analysing data
-testing hypotheses
-dealing with problematic data.

Each chapter includes graphs and figures explaining theory through worked examples, chapter summaries, and exercises to aid student understanding. An appendix containing a summary of statistical formulae, excel commands and statistical tables is included and is an invaluable resource. 

Presenting a down-to-earth and readable introduction to quantitative research, this book is a useful how-to guide for students encountering quantitative data for the first time, or for postgraduates embarking on linguistic research projects.

“Reviewed in Times Higher Education Supplement, 28 May 2009” – 

“Rasinger’s book remains a comprehensive and accessible introduction to quantitative research methods in linguistics. Rasinger covers all the bases, including everything from research design through to implementation and analysis, and makes good use of examples drawn from real linguistics research to illustrate important concepts. The inclusion of new sections on ANOVAs and MANOVAs, the addition of brief introductions to doing statistics in SPSS and R, and the updated suggestions for further reading all make the revised edition the ideal choice for students who wish to learn the basics of quantitative linguistics.” –  Erez Levon, Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, Queen Mary, University of London, UK,

“For the maths-shy linguistics student with no statistics training, this long-needed, reader-friendly book demystifies what quantitative research is and how it's done. Assuming no prior knowledge, students are introduced to various research methods and shown the steps to designing, analysing and interpreting data. Statistical analyses are brilliantly explained and illustrated with examples from published research with which students will already be familiar.” –  Barbara Allen, University of Sussex, UK

“Presenting a down-to-earth and readable introduction to quantitative research, this book is useful how-to guide for students encountering quantitative data for the first time, or for postgraduates embarking on linguistic research projects.” –  Education Today
