Quantitative Narrative Analysis

Quantitative Narrative Analysis

January 2010 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Covering a number of disciplines, including linguistics, literary criticism, computer science, and statistics, this book illustrates author Roberto Franzosi's distinctive approach to the quantitative analysis of large volumes of narrative texts. The author bases his approach on a rigorous linguistic theory of narrative, rather than the ad-hoc approach typical of content analysis. Focusing on statistical techniques that mirror key narrative features, the book also shows how quantitative narrative analysis (QNA) goes hand-in-hand with another technique of qualitative data analysis: QCA (qualitative comparative analysis).
