Word level based comparative text analysis

 
 

Many questions of the humanities, which relate to specific text resources, can be reduced to the analysis of vocabulary. Especially the comparison of such vocabulary is of central interest. This may require comparing two own text resources or a text resource with a reference corpus. CLARIN allows to easily perform such comparative analyses using the resources and Web tools it provides. The following show case will demonstrate this on the basis of a simple example. It covers the discovery and selection of resources, their processing and finally their analysis. The aim is to demonstrate to scholars how to answer own scientific questions with the help of comparative text analysis within CLARIN.
