    A work in progress! In Bookalator (, India Amos plays around with some Project Gutenberg texts and a popular set of natural language–processing tools.

    For now, browse all the words in Jane Austen’s PERSUASION, see how many times each occurs, and view all the sentences in which a given word is used.

    Coming eventually:
    • Compare two books to see which words they share and which are unique to each.
    • Compare the words used in sets of books.
    • View some graphical representations of usage data.
    • Maybe be able to upload some text and find out who in the collection appears most likely to have written it.

    This project uses the natural ( library, as well as natural-gutenberg ( Future iterations will involve D3 and the beautiful Wordnik API.
