Reference Corpus

The KeyWords tool compares a study text (or texts) with a comparison set of texts. This can be large and represent some idea of a range of text in a given language, such as the 100 million word British National Corpus. Or it can be chosen as comparable, for example when you study the Election manifesto of one political party and compare it to the manifesto of another or a set of manifestos of several parties.  


In the Controller you can set your reference corpus word list for KeyWords and Concord to make use of. (That is, a word list created using the WordList tool.)
