Task: study change over time in a word of interest using one of these resources

Points to think about

  • How to get started: need to prepare data for analysis, what sort of ready-to-go data is out there
  • Do we start with a research question or do we just explore the data and hope that something emerges?
  • Different materials need to be handled differently: a single novel vs. a corpus of correspondence/forum data/whatever
  • How to ensure replicability (if not reproducibility)?
  • Where to get help? Need to network with computer scientists and the like
