Analysing Dramatic Figure Speech with R, Part 2

So far, we loaded dramatic texts into R with the help of a web service that converted from UIMA XMI files into CoNLL-like CSV files. Now that we have released version 0.4.1 of our DramaAnalysis R package, this is no longer necessary. Instead, we have integrated the needed Java code directly into the R package. This makes, we hope, using the R package much easier.

We also started collecting guides and tutorials for various things in the package. So far, we’re covering extraction of figure statistics, Creation and use of configuration matrices and doing word field analyses.

All guides will be posted to the DramaAnalysis Wiki.
