Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC) is a text analysis software program designed by James W. Pennebaker, Roger J. Booth, and Martha E. Francis. LIWC calculates the degree to which people use different categories of words across a wide array of texts, including emails, speeches, poems, or transcribed daily speech. With a click of a button, you can determine the degree any text uses positive or negative emotions, self-references, causal words, and 70 other language dimensions. ·
Questions and Answers in Linguistics (QAL) is a free online peer-reviewed journal published by Center for General and Comparative Linguistics at the University of Wrocław. QAL presents papers focused on especially problematic areas of linguistic research, based on data from diverse languages. As far as theoretical analyses are concerned, we are primarily interested in works within the generative paradigm, although papers using different theoretical approaches can also be considered. We express an interest in interdisciplinary research employing methods from typology, historical studies, corpus studies and experimental psycho– or neurolinguistics providing an empirical background to purely theoretical research. We assume that an exhaustive understanding of a phenomenon as complex as natural language can only come about from bringing together pieces of evidence from many different sources.
QAL is an open access online journal, which means that articles we publish are freely available on the internet immediately after publication for any individual or institution to download, copy, read and quote free of charge, provided that the authors are properly credited and the integrity of the texts is maintained. ·
