So how do I…
We’ll cover making clean audio recordings in Audacity and in SpeechRecorder. Audacity is easy-to-use and perfect for making a single (long) recording of a speaker. SpeechRecorder presents individual word/sentence prompts to a speaker, saving each utterance separately.
...annotate in Praat
We’ll cover making TextGrid annotations in Praat. We’ll read a wav file in Praat, create an empty TextGrid with several tiers, add boundaries delimiting individual words and phonemes in the recording, and save the annotations to a TextGrid file.
...script in Praat
Here’s a brief intro into the Praat scripting language. We’ll cover how to write and run a script, point you to some tutorials, highlight some of the strange quirks in the Praat scripting language, and provide some scripts we find useful ourselves.
...run a power analysis
This R script runs a simulation-based power analysis for a simple 2AFC experimental design. This is by no means a one-size-fits-all solution to all your power needs. Use at your own risk!
...write a paper
Here’s a Word template that includes all basic sections of a paper, template statements (e.g., ethics, participants specs, etc.), ‘fields’ to automatically update figure/table numbers, heading styles, and Zotero for reference management.
This describes which journal to choose, which suggested (or dispreferred?) reviewers to mention, an example cover letter, how to read the submission system, when to contact the editorial office about your submission, and how to respond to reviewers.
