By using text analysis tools, we can explore patterns and anomalies across thousands of texts--or in a single document. This hands-on workshop will provide a basic grounding in text analysis, focusing on:
- why to use text analysis, and what pitfalls to avoid
- how to get access to large text collections
- how to use freely available tools such as AntConc and Voyant to create a concordance, identify frequently occurring phrases, and see what terms co-occur
