TUTORIALS

Below are links to tutorials I created for the Language Technology and Data Analysis Laboratory (LADAL).

  • DATA SCIENCE BASICS
  • INTRODUCTION TO R
  • DATA VISUALIZATION
  • STATISTICS
  • TEXT ANALYTICS / TEXT MINING / CORPUS LINGUISTICS
  • CASE STUDIES /FOCUS TUTORIALS
    • Creating vowel charts with Praat and R
      This LADAL tutorial shows how to extract formant values in Praat and use these to create a vowel chart in R.
    • Text Mining with R: Building a Text Classifier
      This tutorial exemplifies how to create a text classifier with R, i.e. it will implement a machine-learning algorithm, which classifies texts as being either a speech by Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. The script is based on Timothy DAuria’s YouTube tutorial “How to Build a Text Mining, Machine Learning Document Classification System in R!” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1V2McKbkLo). The data is available here and the code for downloading the speeches is available here.
    • Corpus Linguistics: Gender and Age Differences in Swearing
      This LADAL tutorial exemplifies how to perform a simple corpus analysis with R by focusing on gender and age differences in swear word use in Irish English.
    • PDF to txt
      This LADAL tutorial shows how to extract the text from pdf-files into txt-files for further processing.
    • Webcrawling and -scraping with R
      This LADAL tutorial shows how to crawl and scrape websites using R.

FOR STUDENTS

  • General Notes for Students attending my Courses (Merkblatt für Seminare)
    You will find a documents with general information about my seminars here. Please read this document in case you are attending or plan to attend one of my seminars! (last updated 2015/02/16)
  • Model term paper
    You will find a model term paper here. This model term paper includes information about the structure, content, and formatting of term papers. You can also use it as a template for your own term papers and use the formatting within the model. (last updated 2015/04/08)
