About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Load textual data into R and turn it into a corpus object and understand the concept of lexical style in textual analysis

  2. Extract meta-data from text document filenames and calculate the type to token ratio (TTR)

  3. Examine the change in the type to token ratio or level of text complexity over time

  4. Tokenize text documents to examine top words by frequency of appearance and isolate words of particular lexical interest in the text

  5. Visualize the change in the variation in the frequency of features of particular lexical interest in your text
