Lucia and her students selected a random subset of texts from the Documents Repository to perform an initial linguistic analysis. They determined a preliminary set of categories of analysis to employ in this first pass, and entered data into a web form.
The following set of visualizations of nearly 30 texts suggests some of the ways the corpus might be analyzed for linguistic variance. Lucia will continue to refine and extend this analysis with future classes of students at UNC. Eventually, this data will be triangulated with demographic data downloaded from the PewResearch Hispanic Trends Project to provide better information to service providers.
