Computerlinguistische Textanalyse in der Literaturwissenschaft? Oder: »The Importance of Being Earnest« bei quantitativen Untersuchungen

Kuhn, Jonas

Abstract

In its first part, this article gives some illustrative insights into the spectrum of methods and model types from Computational Linguistics that one could in principle apply in the analysis of literary texts. The idea is to indicate the considerable potential that lies in a targeted refinement and extension of the analysis procedures, as they have been typically developed for newspaper texts and other everyday texts. The second part is a personal assessment of some key challenges for the integration of working practices from Computational Linguistics and Literary Studies, which ultimately leads to a plea for an approach that derives the validity of model-based empirical text analysis from the annotation of reference corpus data. This approach should make it possible, in perspective, to refine modeling techniques from Computational Linguistics in such a way that even complex hypotheses from Literary Theory can be addressed with differential, data-based experiments, which one should ideally be able to integrate into a hermeneutic argumentation.
