Course Aims

Linguistics concepts often display ranges of discrete values that can be translated into numerical variables and then scrutinized by statistical tests. This course enables the students to represent linguistic problems in terms of numerical problems, to calculate statistical measures and to reinterpret these measures back into linguistics in a way that provides an answer to the original linguistic problem.
