What is Text Analyisis?

Text analysis: using textual information as a data set for qualitative research or visualization.

Crucial elements in design of text analysis tools are:

  • Computer-assisted reading
  • Computer-assisted text synthesis
  • Computer-assisted play

(Sinclair, 2003)

Definitions:

 

Concordance: An index of words in a text. A hybrid text created from the original text by choices of the user creating possibilities for interpretation (Rockwell, 2003) a Word Tree is a visualization of a traditional concordance.

Grounded Theory: A research methodology that starts by gathering data as the first step.  A hypothesis is then reverse-engineered by coding the data.

Web 2.0: second generation web development that promotes social networking, collaboration and information sharing. Tagging is a way of coding informaiton to make it sharable.

Folksonomy: User-generated collaborative taxonomy (that is, tags and categories) for classifying information. a.k.a Social Bookmarking, Collaborative tagging. See: delicious, LibraryThing,
