Statistics in Language Research gives a non-technical but more or less complete treatment of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) for language researchers. ANOVA is the most frequently used technique when handling the outcomes of research designs with more than two treatments or groups. This technique is used in all parts of linguistics which deal with observations obtained in survey studies and in (quasi-)experimental research. This book goes beyond the conventional topics treated in introductory textbooks, as it covers topics like ‘violations of assumptions', ‘missing data', ‘problems in repeated measures designs', but also topics which are particularly relevant for language researchers, like power analysis, quasi F, F1, F2 and minF'.
