Textometry, born in France in the 80’s, has developed powerful techniques for the analysis of large body of texts. Following lexicometry and text statistical analysis, it offers tools and methods tested in multiple branches of the humanities and is statistically well founded.
The project brings together open-source Textometry software developments to set up a modular platform called TXM. It is both an heritage of international influence and the launch of a new generation of textometrical research, in synergy with existing corpus technologies (Unicode, XML, TEI, NLP tools, CQP, R).
The TXM platform is delivered in two different forms,
For the following operating systems:
Windows (32 and 64 bits);
Mac OS X;
Linux (32 and 64 bits).
The TXM desktop software allows you to import your own corpora and analyze them on your own machine.
The TXM web portal software allows access to online corpora through a web browser. It includes configurable access controls.
It installs itself on a web server in a similar way to the Wordpress blog software: articles are replaced by text corpora and navigation in articles by text analysis and exploration tools.
