Why I use LaTeX

When I was writing my PhD I got fed up with the limitations of Word and Endnote. Partly this was because I was using a not particularly powerful laptop and was writing a picture-heavy chapter but mainly I was tired of spending so much time fixing and re-fixing tabs on glosses, tables and general layout issues. On the advice of Doug Arnold, University of Essex, and his website Latex for Linguists, I decided to try latex. I haven’t looked back. .

Handouts from LaTeX seminar in Oxford:


As part of the Teacher Code-switching project at University of Oxford, we carried out some stimulated recalls, which we subsequently analysed using N.Vivo. Together with Mairin Hennebry and Yuen-Yi Lo, we did some training with the MSc in Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition students. You can find a copy of the handout here
