Visualisation and language change is the second methodological training workshop for the AHRC-funded project The Linguistic DNA of Modern Western Thought: Paradigmatic Terms in English, 1500-1800. The workshop focusses on visualising language change and is aimed at advancing our understanding of visualisation tools for reading less structured, historical data and for exploring research questions in the data.
The aim of The Linguistic DNA project is to understand the evolution of early modern thought by modelling the semantic and conceptual changes which occurred in English discourse (c.1500–c.1800). The project uses information extraction techniques and data visualisation to identify lexical patterns in 250,000 texts, mainly from EEBO and ECCO.
