Experimental Research at Stanford is tightly coupled with syntactic, semantic, and computational theory. The Lab Syntax course is offered jointly by the syntax faculty and aims to provide students with a systematic introduction to methods of handling syntactic data, including corpus work on ecologically natural data and controlled experimental paradigms. It emphasizes practical, hands-on experience, with homework assignments in data gathering, handling, and analysis. This course is followed by the Experimental Syntax Research Seminar, where students discuss their ongoing experimental research, sharing useful and successful methods and strategies for dealing with real problems.
