Word cloud

Nathalie KAKPO asked 3 years ago


I used CorText to find out the frequency of terms in a corpus. Does CorText Manager offer a feature to make a word cloud?

In advance, thank you for your reply,

Thank you for your answer, Lionel. A last question if you don’t mind. I have used a W2V explorer script but the latter considers words such as “in”, “to”, “for” and so on. It makes the analysis wrong. How can i ask CorText to not take into account these words ?
Yes, CorText is a very useful tool but I am still a beginner.

Dear Nathalie,
We do not have a word cloud tool!
But you can draw networks based on keywords, classify and show your keywords using a word to vec strategy, and build a contrast analysis with keywords based on a set of other variables.
Thank for using CorText Manager, we hope that you are enjoying it.

Not easy to tell.

You may want to:

  • Decrease the Minimum Frequency
  • Increase the Size of the Window
  • Recompute the model = Yes
  • Find Bigrams = Yes
  • Find Trigrams = Yes, if you want to find trigrams
  • Increase Minimum word length (in number of letters) to ovoid those small keywords you have listed
  • Lemmatize words = yes if your texts are in english
  • Decrease Minimal Size of Clusters

I hope it helps
