General information (plz read this first!)

This is the companion website of the following publications: Statistics for Linguistics with R2 (2013, Mouton de Gruyter), Statistics for Linguistics with R1 (2009, Mouton de Gruyter), and Statistik für Sprachwissenschaftler (2008, Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht). This website contains all the files you will need for making the most of these books: all input files, all the R code, and all output files, which you should (i) download to your computer, (ii) unzip them using the passwords from the book, and (iii) put them into target directories as suggested below (or similar ones if you use a Macintosh or a Linux/Unix machine).

To unzip the encrypted zip files, use the passwords provided in your book (at the beginning of Chapter 2) with, say, 7-zip (Windows users), StuffItExpander (Macintosh users), or zip/7-zip (Unix/Linux users). Ideally, you have also already downloaded and installed the other applications you will need most for your book. In case you haven't, here are links to the most relevant applications, R and CRAN, RStudio, and LibreOffice.
