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.

  • Floating Tone, I fixed something in your question and now I think it works. When you see this, let me know so I can delete my comment. :)

This is going to seem horribly self promotional, but I've gotten a lot of good feedback on a bunch of notes that I've put together, which can be found here: http://www.ling.upenn.edu/~joseff/rstudy/

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

  • Looks really handy, thanks very much JoFrhwld! Commented Sep 24, 2011 at 6:55
