Examining Continuous Variables in SPSS Quiz

This quiz accompanies the practical with the same name. It covers techniques to describe the features of continuous variables using SPSS, looking at how you can obtain summary statistics that describe the distribution of variables both in terms of measures of location and spread. It also looks at how one can summarise these variables graphically.

Voices of the Parliament: A Corpus Approach to Parliamentary Discourse Research

While corpus methods are widely used in linguistics, including gender analysis, this tutorial shows the potential of richly annotated language corpora for research of the socio-cultural context and changes over time that are reflected through language use. The tutorial encourages students and scholars of modern languages, as well as users from other fields of digital humanities and social sciences who are interested in the study of socio-cultural phenomena through language, to engage with user-friendly digital tools for the analysis of large text collections. The tutorial is designed in such a way that it takes full advantage of both linguistic annotations and the available speaker and text metadata to formulate powerful quantitative queries that are then further extended with manual qualitative analysis in order to ensure adequate framing and interpretation of the results.

The tutorial demonstrates the potential of parliamentary corpora research via concordancers without the need for programming skills. No prior experience in using language corpora and corpus querying tools is required in order to follow this tutorial. While the same analysis could be carried out on any parliamentary corpus with similar annotations and metadata, in this tutorial we will use the siParl 2.0 corpus which contains parliamentary debates of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia from 1990 to 2018. Knowledge of Slovenian is not required to follow the tutorial. To reproduce the analyses in other languages, we invite you to explore a parliamentary corpus of your choice from those available through CLARIN.

Introduction to Speech Analysis

This course offers a general picture of managing speech corpora and of the methods that are available for the acoustic-phonetic study of speech. During the course, students use a speech analysis program called Praat and learn to apply the main features of the program in their own work with speech recordings. In addition, students will learn the basics of another program called ELAN that can be used for transcribing and annotating audio as well as video material.
