That’s it for the course, but not for this website, which I’ll leave on-line in case it’s of use to you or anyone else. Thanks to all of you for making this course such a pleasure to teach.
Please add your comments on the last week here: Hidden structure learning, emergent categoricity, language-specific constraints.
Please add your Week 3 comments and questions here. This includes the classes of Thursday July 21st (handouts and demo files now available) and Monday July 25th (coming soon).
Post-class update: The demo files folder has been reposted with the missing excel file, and the link to Mark Johnson’s invaluable slides on MaxEnt models that I refer to in the handout is now on the relevant “Models” page.
Please add your Week 2 discussion comment/question here. Week 2 includes the classes of Thursday July 14th and Monday July 18th, whose topics are OT/HG typology with different constraint sets, serial OT/HG, and the introduction to probabilistic models and variation.
The handouts and demo files for these classes (handouts 3 and 4) are now available here.
There is a workshop “Testing models of phonetics and phonology” Wednesday. Please come, even if you haven’t registered (just bring your own coffee and snacks if that’s the case!).
The second handout and associated demo files are now available on the handouts and demo files page. Don’t forget to add your Week 1 comment to the last post!
Please add comments to discuss material from week 1: HG Basics, comparison with OT and OT-LC, OT-Help intro, etc.
We will be using this space for course updates and discussions…
