I need references like papers/articles/books by and for people who use R for analysing phonetic data. I have Harrington's (2008) Phonetic Analysis of Speech Corpora, and it's great, but a lot of other R guides are directed at researchers in applied linguistics.

What are the most appropriate references that have tips more relevant to phonetic work? Please explain why you're suggesting a certain resource.

Not all of the examples are based on phonetic data, but most of the ones from Summer 2010 are.
