Text fragments considered typical

We gaan naar den grond met die verdraagzaamheid, en verliezen onze eigene vrijheid terwijl wij zoo dolzinnig ijveren voor die van anderen. We zullen er de vruchten van plukken, als de inquisitie regt spreekt op onzen vrijen grond en de schavotten staan opgerigt voor ons en onze kinderen.“

“Tolerance will be our Waterloo. We will loose our freedom whilst devoting ourselves to the freedom of others. We will only recognize the fruits of our ignorance when the inquisition judges on our free soil and the scaffolds will be the fate of ourselves and our children.”

Bij gevolg kan elk middel, hoe snood , hoe onredelijk, hoe

goddeloos ook, aangewend worden: staatkundige verdeeldheid

revolutie, burgertwist, inquisitie, brandstapels, vergif, zede-

loosheid , koningsmoord,... Ziedaar wapenen in handen der

Jezuïten !

“Every means, however nasty, malicious or blasphemous can be used: inciting civil war, revolution, inquisition, burning at the stake, poison, murdering the king …are all weapons in the hands of the Jesuits.”

Advantages

Advantages

  • Gives insight into large number of documents. No need to use just a few and run the risk of not having a representative sample

  • Combining advantages of text analysis with statistical techniques.

  • Possibility to enrich the dictionary of the software with specific domain knowledge.

  • - New approaches possible

20


Set backs

Set-backs

  • The researcher will need some knowledge of the documents and their subject to be able to interpret the results.

  • The approach is especially apt for broad research of large quantities of text. The more one zooms in, the less relevant the cluster results will become.

  • -Supplementing the lexical universe of the software with specific domain knowledge might be time-consuming.

  • - The researcher will have to be familiar, or will need to familiarize him or herself, with a number of statistic techniques (e.g. cluster analysis).
