Coding Task

  • Isa Buchstaller (2008) studied the use of verbs of quotation in US/UK English (like, say, go, went, ∅ etc.). This was her dependent variable (the thing that does the varying that she primarily wanted to measure). Buchstaller gives examples showing how she coded her data for the independent variables (the factors that the dependent variable is influenced by), as below.
    • Identify all instances of the dependent variable
    • Identify the independent variables
    • Open a new spreadsheet and code the examples
    • What would you do next? Counts? Percentages?
