Abstract:

The aim of this book is try to illustrate with numerous examples how
quantitative methods can most fruitfully contribute to linguistic analysis and
research. In addition, it does not intend to offer an exhaustive presentation
of all statistical techniques available to linguistics, but to demonstrate the
contribution that statistics can and should make to linguistic studies.

This book shows how quantitative methods and statistical techniques can
supplement qualitative analyses of language. It attempts to present some
mathematical and statistical properties of natural languages, and introduces
some of the quantitative methods which are of the most value in working
empirically with texts and corpora, illustrating the various issues with
numerous examples and moving from the most basic descriptive techniques to
decision-taking techniques and to more sophisticated multivariate statistical
language models.
