Voyant Knows All…

I recently copied the introduction of Burlesque: A Living History by Jane Briggman. Voyant spit out these interesting graphics.


Voyant shows the user the most common words in the corpus (body of words), as well as a word cloud, and a line graph showing the frequency of the word selected in the top middle section. These tools could come in handy when writing papers in order to know how often certain words are used. It’s also fun to see parts of your favorite texts in a new way.
