The HSS Linguistics Unit at IIT Delhi will organize a 7-day workshop on ‘Experimental & Empirical Methods in Linguistics’ from 9th July to 15th July 2017.

The workshop aims to introduce participants with methods and tools used in experimental and corpus/computational linguistics.

The workshop will be a combination of talks and lab sessions. Talks will provide an opportunity to learn about some current trends in psycho/neuro-linguistics, computational linguistics and cognitive science.

Lab sessions will familiarize the participants with R programming, experiment design, data analysis and corpus linguistics.

Salient features of the workshop

  • Lab sessions on how to design and run a psycholinguistic experiment.
  • Lab sessions on data analysis of different types of experimental data (e.g. grammaticality judgement, reaction time, eye-tracking data, etc.). We will use R to do all the analysis.
  • Lab sessions on basics of corpus linguistics using NLTK.
  • Lectures on some current trends in psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, computational linguistics and cognitive science.
  • Participants will be provided a certificate after successful completion of the workshop.


  • Students who intend to pursue research in psycho linguistics/neuro linguistics/computational linguistics and would like to learn experimental design, data analysis techniques, and corpus analysis.
  • The workshop would be ideal for students who are starting their research in such areas.
  • Research scholars who would like to brush up their basics in these domains can also apply.
  • Students from other disciples such as psychology, cognitive science, computer science, etc who want to learn experimental design and data analysis techniques can also apply.

Important Dates:

  • Last date for registration: 17th May 2017 (or until seats last)
  • Start of workshop: 9th July 2017
  • End of workshop: 15th July 2017
