Text Analysis Tools

There are hundreds of software applications that are designed for text analysis.

Other Tools + Texts

Where can I find texts?

Combining Text-Analysis with GIS: an Example

Example: Wordle

Crystal Smith explores whether language in television ads reinforces gender stereotypes. See the comparison (and judge for yourself)  here.  

Wordle: Words Used in Advertising for Girls' Toys
Wordle: Words Used to Advertise Boys' Toys

Example: Voyant - Bubblelines

Bubblelines visualizes repeated words in a text.  I recommend switching this view so that each word appears on a separate line.
