Overview

Simple programming expertise is an essential part of many forms of data collection and analysis for modern linguists and related language professionals. Programming for Linguists: JavaTM Technology for Language Researchers is a practical introduction to programming using the JavaTM programming language, a full-powered language with complete graphics capability that can be run on any computer.

Programming for Linguists includes over one hundred carefully constructed sample programs that introduce new concepts simply but also accomplish tasks necessary for anyone who works with language as data. Many of these programs can be used immediately, with minimal or no modification. The text is accompanied by exercises, and all of the programs are available at http://www.u.arizona.edu/~hammond.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is for people who want to get some computing done – particularly linguists, behavioral scientists, and scholars in the humanities. I plan to recommend it to my linguistics students who want to learn about computer programming." Michael A. Covington, Artificial Intelligence Center, University of Georgia

"Here finally is an introductory Java programming book that really enables anyone interested in working with language on a computer to learn how to do it. You don't have to be a ‘language researcher' to use this book – all you need is an interest in language and a willingness to learn the craft of object-oriented programming." D. Terence Langendoen, University of Arizona

"Surprisingly readable...should be on the bookshelf of any discourse analysist even thinking about tinkering with using computers to automate some portion of their data analysis... structured and written for maximum learning and understanding of the relevance of different programming features for a linguist." Discourse Studies
