Chapter Summary

The present chapter elaborates on the procedure of the computer-assisted analysis and the computer-programs used in this analysis. The programs used in the synoptic analysis have been developed in the CALAP project. The procedure of a computer-assisted analysis described in this chapter has some characteristics that distinguish it from other models of computer-assisted linguistic and textual analysis. First, the analysis concerns encoding rather than tagging. Related to this first characteristic is the second one, namely that the distinction between abstract linguistic entities and their realizations plays an important role. Thirdly, the analysis follows basically a bottom-up approach, starting on the level of graphemes and ending on the level of the text. Fourthly, the decisions that on each level are made by the human researcher, are defined as working assumptions, which can be reconsidered or reformulated, for example on the basis of the analysis of the higher levels.

Keywords: CALAP; computer-assisted analysis; graphemes; linguistic analysis; synoptic analysis; textual analysis
