Working with sociophonetic data in R

Workshop delivered at the University of Sheffield, 2019

In 2019 I delivered a workshop on using R to analyse sociophonetic data at the University of Sheffield. The tutorial, which focuses specifically on static and dynamic formant analysis, covers the following:

  • data wrangling using the tidyverse (i.e. how to add, remove and re-code columns, and reshape data when working with formant trajectories)
  • how to perform basic descriptive statistics for exploratory analysis of vowel formant data
  • how to plot vowel formant data, including dynamic formant trajectories
