Generalised Linear Mixed Models (PHCL, in prep.)

Roland Schäfer. Generalised Linear Mixed Models. In: Stefan Gries & Magali Paquot. Practical Handbook of Corpus Linguistics. De Gruyter.

In the spirit of the Practical Handbook of Corpus Linguistics (in prep.), this article shows readers how to estimate different types of Generalised Linear Mixed Models (GLMMs) on corpus data using R. While the handbook (and consequently the article) has a hands-on character, I still discuss problems and misconceptions (for example about the “nature” of random effects).
