General information (plz read this first!)


This is the companion website of the following publication: Gries, Stefan Th. 2009. Quantitative corpus linguistics with R: a practical introduction. Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group. This website contains all the files you will need for making the most of this book and the case study assignments hosted here: all input files, all the R code, and all output files. There are two ways in which you can download the files: one way is to just download these three separate zip files: all input files , all the code and exercise boxes, and all output files. Another way allows you to pick and choose so that you (i) create target directories as suggested below (or similar ones if you use a Macintosh or a Linux/Unix machine), (ii) download the files you want to your computer, and (iii) extract the zipped files into the specified target directories.

To unzip the encrypted zipped files, use the passwords provided in the book and, say, 7-zip (Windows users), p7zip or zipeg (Macintosh users), or File-roller (Unix/Linux users). Ideally, you have also already downloaded and installed the other applications you will need most for the book. In case you haven't, here are links to the most relevant applications, R, RStudio or Notepad ++ (for Windows users), and LibreOffice. Many more corpus-linguistically relevant links can be found here.

Finally, a list of errata can be found here.
