QIP-CEP Workshop on Experimental & Empirical Methods in Linguistics

9th July - 15th July 2017

IIT Delhi

The HSS Linguistics Unit at IIT Delhi will organize a 7-day workshop on ‘Experimental & Empirical Methods in Linguistics’ from 9th July to 15th July 2017. The workshop aims to introduce participants with methods and tools used in experimental and corpus/computational linguistics. The workshop will be a combination of talks and lab sessions. Talks will provide an opportunity to learn about some current trends in psycho/neuro-linguistics, computational linguistics and cognitive science. Lab sessions will familiarize the participants with R programming, experiment design, data analysis and corpus linguistics.

Salient features of the workshop

  • Lab sessions on how to design and run a psycholinguistic experiment.
  • Lab sessions on data analysis of different types of experimental data (e.g. grammaticality judgement, reaction time, eye-tracking data, etc.). We will use R to do all the analysis.
  • Lab sessions on basics of corpus linguistics using NLTK.
  • Lectures on some current trends in psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, computational linguistics and cognitive science.
  • Participants will be provided a certificate after successful completion of the workshop.
