Methods in Experimental Syntax
Lauren Ackerman (Newcastle University)
In these lectures, I will touch on three fundamental components of experimental work in syntax: designing effective questions, choosing informative tests, and analysing data. Starting with the theory behind the scientific method, we will explore what makes an elegant and interesting experiment and what experimental paradigms are appropriate for different types of questions. We will end by getting practical experience in visualising and interpreting quantitative data using the popular software package R. By the end of this workshop, attendees will be prepared to look critically at methods in the quantitative experimental syntax literature and identify what methodologies are relevant to their own questions.
