The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the emerging field of thevisualization of linguistic information (LingVis). LingVis combines techniques developedin the fields of Information Visualization (InfoVis) and Visual Analytics with methodologyand analyses from theoretical and computational linguistics. Besides standardvisualization techniques such as bar charts, scatterplots or line charts, a large number ofadvanced novel methods have been developed. Prominent examples are treemaps,pixel displays, sunburst visualizations and glyphs of varying complexity. We presentconcrete use cases of LingVis for synchronic and diachronic linguistic questions. A partof the course will include a hands-on session in which students can experiment with preprepareddata sets and freely accessible LingVis software in order to investigate howcomplex linguistic questions can profit from visual analysis.

The course will build on the ESSLLI 2014 course held by Miriam Butt and Chris Culy, see http://ling.uni-konstanz.de/pages/home/butt/main/material/esslli14-vis/

Expected level and prerequisitesIntroductory. Basic knowledge of linguistics is required. Elementary programmingexperience will be helpful but is not a priori required.
