The term "lexomics" was originally coined to describe the computer-assisted detection of "words" (short sequences of bases) in genomes. When applied to literature as we do here, lexomics is the analysis of the frequency, distribution, and arrangement of words in large-scale patterns. The current suite of lexomics tools are:
- scrubber -- strips tags, removes stop words, applies lemma lists, and prepares texts for diviText
- diviText -- cuts texts into chunks in one of three ways, count words, exports the results
- treeView -- builds dendrograms and saves the output as .pdf or xml in phyloXML format
The Lexomics web site site contains extensive documentation and video tutorials.
Note: Lexomics has been replaced Lexos, which offers an integrated workflow and additional functionality.
