# Introduction

Welcome to the online tutorial for R!

R is a powerful open-source environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is also a programming language in which data can be handled and statistical operations carried out efficiently.

In the following exercises, you are going to learn the basics of using R: importing your data, creating subsets based on your criteria, summarizing the data as well as performing the basic statistical tests used in linguistics.

This tutorial is currently under development, any feedback on how it could be improved is thus welcome. Please direct your feedback to:
