The article I am currently sharing with you is also related to linguistics.
It is in the form of a set of slides and describes statistical concepts and tools that might come in handy for linguists.
Here are the slides: http://aiaioo.com/whitepapers/statistics_for_linguistics.pdf
The goal of these slides was to teach a team of linguists about statistics and machine learning.
The main sections are:
- Motivation for learning new tools using examples from algorithms and their application to education and poverty elimination.
- What to annotate
- How to develop insights
- How to annotate
- How much data to annotate
- How to avoid mistakes in using the corpus
