Learn how you can apply Lexomic methods to your texts. How do you know where to start? To get a feel for the types of analyses that you can do, follow along on our Project Videos below starting with “The Story of Daniel”, “Reading Dendrograms”, etc. (If desired, each video has an accompanying transcript in .pdf format; see links on right for the transcripts).

Writing Together

Scott Kleinman (California State University, Northridge) is leading our group writing of what we are calling In the Margins, both our tools’ integrated help as well as best-practices comments about the workflow during introductory text mining and experimentation.

Teaching Together (English-CS team teaching)

Students “connect” a computer science course with one of two English courses: Anglo-Saxon Literature or┬áTolkien. Read more about our English-Computer Science connection and check out some of the course materials in the “Computing for Poets” course.

Digital Humanities

The use of computers to manage the storage and retrieval of written texts creates new opportunities for scholars of ancient and other written works. Recent advances in computer software, hypertext, and database methodologies have made it possible to ask novel questions about a poem, a story, a trilogy, or an entire corpus. Check out our web-based workflow to help new users perform computational analyses of digitized texts: Lexos.
