*About the Summer School*
Over the past 15 years linguists have been collecting language 
documentation data of endangered languages. The exploration and analysis 
of the collections have resulted in grammars and publications of 
linguistic phenomena. More and more linguists would like to explore the 
power of a quantitative analysis of specific phenomena. While statistic 
and corpus mining courses are offered in many places, focused courses in 
corpus development and statistical exploration taking the specific 
problems of small or skewed collections into account are rare. This 
summer school, a CIDLeS-ELDP event, will provide a hands on introduction 
into turning collections into corpora, preparing and cleaning data for 
quantitative analysis and, for instance, statistical software R data 

Participants are expected to have already collected data and have 
specific questions they would like to explore. The courses will provide 
theoretical introductions into the respective area and hands on practice 
sessions in which the participants will prepare and analyze their own 
data set.

The number of participants is limited to 25. The minimum number of 
participants is 15.
