Synopsis: Departing radically from traditional content analysis approaches to the quantitative study of texts, this work is based on a linguistic theory of narrative, rather than the ad hoc approaches of context analysis. The book illustrates a set of tools--story grammars, relational data models, and network models--that can be profitably used for the collection, organization, and analysis of narrative data in socio-historical research (e.g., narratives of strikes, demonstrations, lynchings, and riots).

Book Description: From Words to Numbers departs radically from traditional content analysis approaches to the quantitative study of texts. It is based on a rigorous linguistic theory of narrative, rather than the ad-hoc approaches of context analysis. Furthermore, it sows words to through an elegant mathematical t hread. Finally, it has engaged narrative structures dominated by the metaphors of the "journey" (from words to numbers) and the alchemy" (words into numbers).

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book illustrates a set of tools - story grammars, relational data models, and network models - that can be profitably used for the collection, organization, and analysis of narrative data in socio-historical research. A story grammar, or Subject-Action-Object and their modifiers, is the linguistic tool the author uses to structure narrative for the purpose of collecting event data. Relational database models make such complex data collection schemes practically feasible in a computer environment. Finally, network models are a statistical tool best suited to analyze this type of data. Driven by the metaphors of the journal (from . to) and the alchemy (words into numbers), the book leads the reader throughout a number of paths, from substantive to methodological issues, across time and disciplines: sociology, linguistics, literary criticism, history, statistics, computer science, philosophy, cognitive psychology, political science.
