Key Words Plot

Top  Previous  Next

This is a key word plot where the text is the file a1f in the British National Corpus (BNC), compared with the whole of the BNC.         




You see:         

each key word (KW) (these obviously have to do with international relations)         
a measure of its dispersion and its keyness         
how many links each has with other KWs in the same text         
how many times each KW came in the text (hits).         
a map showing where each word came.


At the left the blue line represents the start of the text, at the right the blue line represents the end. Look at Britain, Germany, Italy and century -- these seem to come in bursts more or less three-quarters of the way through the text. China, Mao, Peking come together a bit later in the text.
