Abstract

The ZipfExplorer is a tool for the interactive comparison and visuali-zation of shared word type frequencies for two texts or corpora. The tool can be used to give insight into similarities and differences in textual and discourse con-tent in terms of individual keywords or groups of keywords, and also calculates several measures of lexical diversity for the shared types of the selected texts. A selection of texts and corpora can be analyzed, and users can upload their own files for interactive comparison.
