More about playing with word count and position

By | 2007-08-30

I’ve seen in the last few weeks some examples on using the word positions within the sentences… like my “your blog written by monkeys“.

A way to experiment is just looking for a chuck of a sentence, a “meaning” block, that puts in relation two concepts. For example encountering “is the new”, you can create a nice diagram showing new tendencies.

A similar path is getting statistics of word appearances within a text, and their relations. Later you can paint nice pictures using this info, like one visualizing the Holy Books of five world religions.

Finally, you don’t even need to know how to program this systems. You can do things yourself with just paper and pencil, and your favorite song.
