Analyzing Linguistic Variation

Statistical Models and Methods

The book explains the theory and practice of using logistic regression for the description of language variation, including a comprehensive discussion of the Varbrul program used in sociolinguistics. Assuming no prior background in statistics, Paolillo explains the statistical foundation of logistic regression, using concrete examples of variation bearing on substantive issues in linguistics.
