Text Analysis

Today’s technology has made it possible to analyze text in ways that previously would have been impossible or extremely time consuming.   Entire books and large collections of documents can now be scanned and analyzed by computer software for word frequency and word usage.  When multiple books, documents, and other written sources from various time periods are compared, these analyses disclose how word usage has changed over time.  This opens up a new way to look at the writings of the past.
