R scripting tutorial / scripting introduction (PDF)
I still remember how hard it was for me to learn R scripting, especially how hard it was to come up with solutions to allegedly simple problems.
This is why I decided to write an introduction to R scripting showing you how to write R scripts on your own. The manuscript targets specifically people who want to learn how to write some simple scripts. I do so by showing how to clean and preprocess a linguistic corpus for deeper statistical analysis.
Also, I provide an introduction how to script simulations using error-driven learning.
This is not an introduction on how to analyze data, but an introduction on how to program R scripts. If you have any suggestions, what should be in it, please write me.
The manuscript is work in progress! It is far from perfect, finished or ready. Stuff might not work, please be patient. Nevertheless it shows a good deal of how R is working.
Managing Collinearity in Multi-Variate Analysis
Together with my colleagues Harald Baayen and Peter Hendrix, I published a paper on managing collinearity in the Journal of Phonetics called “Strategies for managing collinearity in multivariate linguistic data”.
The paper can be downloaded here.
The data and the scripts can be downloaded from my osf account here.

Writing papers and preparing presentations or posters in LaTeX — sort of a programming language for preparing nicely formatted manuscripts — becomes more and more of a standard in academia. Here you find links to my templates for these three formats. They are on overleaf, an amazing online platform for editing in LaTeX. This youtube video by Matthew Salomone gives a quick and dirty introduction to working with LaTeX on overleaf.

Tast-Dynamic Simulation of Articulatory Gestures
The task-dynamic system of articulation, as proposed in the Articulatory Phonology / Task-Dynamic framework developed, among others, by Catherine Browman, Louis Goldstein, Elliot Saltzman and Dani Byrd, allows to simulate the behavior of articulators using a damped harmonic oscillator. I implemented the code by Dani Byrd and Elliot Saltzman which proposes the “pi-gesture” to modulate gestural coordination.
On this website you can modulate different aspects of articulation such as the strength of the pi-gesture, the duration of the gesture, etc..
The simulation was programmed in R in RStudio and shared in shinyapps.
