Introduction to Data and Text Analysis with R
Lecture 3: Introduction to Text Analysis & Scaling Models
The third lecture will provide a general introduction to automated text analysis, discussing its general concepts and presenting an overview of existing techniques. Later, supervised and unsupervised scaling models (e.g. Wordscores and Wordfish) will be presented. These models are useful to scale texts along a common dimension to detect linguistic similarities/differences as well as language homogeneity/heterogeneity.
