CHAPTER 1 - Text Analysis (part III)

Which word categories are frequently used?

Click on the [Frequent word categories] line of the Result frame, or on the [Show][Frequent word categories] menu.

This function displays the most significant Word categories of the text analyzed.

A Word category is deemed significant when its occurrence frequency is far above average. These results are constructed by comparing the statistics of the analyzed discourse (regarding the category distribution) with specific in-built tables.

When you select a category, the propositions concerned appear in the main window.

Displaying all word categories

Click on the [All word categories] line of the Result frame, or on the [Show][All word categories] menu.

The result obtained with this function is similar to that of the previous one, except that all Word categories are displayed, even those that are less frequent or not significant.

For further details about these Word categories, see chapter 5: "Introduction to text analysis".

To view the References found with these categories, we recommend that you use a Star graph (see Graph properties below).

Lists of verbs and adjectives.

Click on the [Verbs] or [Adjectives] lines of the Result frame, or use the [Show] [Verbs]/[Adjectives] menu.

These two functions show, by lessening frequency, verbs and adjectives met in the analyzed text. Every line is preceded by a meter indicating the number of words (occurrences) found.

These words are reduced to their canonical shape (lemma):

- Verbs are reduced to the infinitive;

- Adjectives are presented in masculine singular.

You can add directly these verbs and adjectives in the Scenario Tool.

These verbs and adjectives can be useful to complete certain analyses (in particular if you analyze a continuation of very short messages, where the least information must be got back), to define and to test your own "qualitative" classifications, or to make linguistic studies.

To print these results, use the menu [File] [Print] and mark options [Verbs] or [Adjectives].
