Text Analysis Software

24 07 2007

At the moment I’m starting work on new empirical material, which I hope will yield insights into the discourse of contemporary distance education. The empirical material consists of about 300 articles in PDF-format, a quite large amount of data.

I’m in the process of trying to find quantitative text-analysis software for analyzing these articles for trends in the data (preferably with the possibility to group different documents) for the purpose of providing input to a deeper qualitative analysis of a selection of the documents.

So far I’ve come up with the following freeware programs for Windows. Any other suggestions, please leave a tip in the comments.
