Hello all! Could anyone take a look at the SPSS data file I've attached here? It has two variablesa dependent variable for "noun phrase length", and an independent variable for "corpus name". I need to do an Independent Samples Ttest to see if there is a significant difference between the two corpora in noun phrase length. However, data in the "length" variable is nonnormally distributed, so I need to do a data transformation for a parametric Ttest to be performed. I've tried the Lg10 function to transform the data, but the transformed data is still not normally distributed. Can I ask for your advice on what functions should be used for an effective transformation? Could you please directly work on the data and upload the transformed data?
If there's no way to transform the data to normality, does it mean I can only use nonparametric tests for my data?
Thank you very so much for your help!
