The former will be based on the relatively new second edition of my corpus linguistics textbook
; the latter will involve chapter 5 of the second edition of my stats book
as prep and then do mixed-effects modeling (with all sorts of add-ons such as a priori and other contrasts, multi-model inferencing, curvature, collinearity, influential data points, imputation ...), classification trees, and random forests. For more organizational information, see here
; for questions about contents, plz ask me.
