Visualisierung sprachlicher Daten

Visual Linguistics – Praxis – Tools

Visualizations play an important role in the scientific research process. They serve to illustrate the knowledge gained, but also as a tool to gain knowledge.
Such visualizations are also important in linguistics. For example in the form of maps, tree graphs and word nets. In corpus linguistics, explorative visualizations are often a way to make the data accessible and interpretable.
The book reflects on the theoretical basics of scientific visualizations in linguistics, shows practical examples and also introduces visualization tools.
