Lexos is a web-based tool to help you explore your favorite corpus of digitized texts. Our primary motivation is to help you find the explorer spirit as you apply computational and statistical probes to your favorite collection of texts. Lexos provides a workflow of effective practices so you are mindful of the many decisions made in your experimental methods.

Our public server shares our latest release of Lexos v3.1.1 (2017) and represents the work over eight summers from Wheaton undergraduates, professors and visiting scholars. Our work is supported by Wheaton College (Norton, Massachusetts) and was previously funded by the NEH -
