Instructions:

 

For this project I want you to explore an idea for how to use text-mining to address a novel question. Your question may be purely scientific (e.g., “How has verb regularization changed over time?”), just interesting (e.g., “How do different newspapers talk about the same news story?”), or sociological (e.g., “How do language patterns differ by US geographic region?”).

 

Remember you are not expected to actually do these analyses, simply write a report in the style of a peer reviewed publication about how you might approach your question of interest.

 

Every paper must contain four sections: 1) Hypothesis, 2) Introduction, 3) Proposed Methods, 4) Discussion, using the following guidelines:

 

Hypothesis: What is your question and what is your educated guess as to what you will find?

 

Introduction: Why is this question of interest, and what background information led you to your hypothesis?

 

Proposed Methods: How might you go about gathering the data that you will use for your analyses? DO YOUR BEST TO FIND ACTUAL SOURCES OF DATA and include links as references. For example, if you want to look at language patterns by US geographic region, perhaps use Facebook posts? Search Google for “public Facebook data” as a starting point.

 

Discussion: What are the pitfalls and potential confounds of your methods, or biases in your data sources? For example, Facebook data may represent only a certain socioeconomic class (people who can afford computers or smartphones), and defining “language patterns” could be very tricky...

 

Additional Requirements:

 

Single-student submission: You will be required to submit a minimum 2-page (double- spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman), maximum 4 page report.

 

Two-person group submission: You will be required to submit a minimum 2.5-page (double-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman), maximum 5 page report.

 

 

Three-person group submission: You will be required to submit a minimum 3-page (double-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman), maximum 6 page report.
