Wordle Wednesday

October 5th, 2011

Using Wordle and NGram are certainly extremely useful Digital Humanities Tools.  They are definitely  new ways of doing old things and are entirely new.  It is true I am having a little difficulty with it, but I am certain that in time I will overcome my fears.  Wordle was amazing because it took words from my paragraph and scattered and jumbled them.  It enabled me to go beyond the actual text by reading words that were related to the general idea.  NGram then allowed me to take words from the Wordle and get an entire history of the word and how that word was used and its frequency during the time period of when the story took place.  These programs helped me go beyond the Denotation of the words and allowed me to understand the Connotation of them.
