Postings about Technology
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.
This guide describes how to analyse dramatic figure speech with R, using our linguistic preprocessing tools. It is written as a step-by-step guide and uses the (German) dramatic texts Romeo und Julia and Emilia Galotti as examples.
This post gives an overview of the current state of the technology we are using and how we plan to proceed in the future. All programs, scripts and components are available on our github page.
