Lexos is a web-based tool to help you explore your favorite corpus of digitized texts. First try Lexos on our server or install your own version on your computer for more advanced work. Our motivation is to first help you find the explorer spirit as you apply computational and statistical probes to your
favorite collection of texts and second to offer tips for effective practices during the many steps and decision points that are involved when beginning and ending an experiment. Our In The Margins tips are embedded within the Lexos webpage on your browser.

Current development on Lexos v3.0 (2016) is the result of eight summers of undergraduates, professors and visiting scholars. Funded by the NEH -and Wheaton College (Norton, MA).
