Example text

The complexity of the theme measured in terms of the number of words used to express it, covaries with the animacy of the recipient. Could it be that animate recipients show a preference for more complex themes, compared to inanimate recipients? To assess this possibility, we calculate the mean length of the theme for animate and inanimate recipients. 071130 but a much more convenient way for obtaining these means simultaneously is to make use of the tapply() function. This function takes three arguments.

We begin with creating a data frame with just the information pertaining to the words and their frequencies: > items = heid[, c("Word", "BaseFrequency")] Because each subject responded to each item, this data frame has multiple identical rows for each word. 50 The final step is to add the information in items to the information already available in heid2. We do this with merge(). As arguments to merge(), we first specify the receiving data frame (heid2), and then the donating data frame (items).

While numerical tables are hard to make sense of, data visualization often allows the main patterns to emerge remarkably well. In what follows, I therefore first discuss tools for visualizing properties of single random variables (in vectors and uni-dimensional tables). I then proceed with an overview of tools for graphing groups of random variables. In addition to introducing further statistical concepts, this chapter serves the purpose, as we go through the examples, of discussing the most commonly used options that R provides for plotting and visualization.
