Distant-Reading with Voyant

Group of Wolfgang, Tyler, Zach.

Word: Psychic

The trend decreased overall, starting with a relative frequency of 4 for the first issue, 1 for the second, and then basically 0 for the rest. The Voyant tools make it much easier to see which issues include the word, and since it makes charts, it eliminates any assumptions we had to make when using a keyword search box. Voyant provided usage information so it essentially eliminates all of the work we did last lab. Distant-reading makes it much easier to see trends of usage, while close-reading makes it easier to see context.
