What is WordSmith Tools?
Lexical Analysis Software’s WordSmith Tools is a research program for people in the field of corpus linguistics and related fields, as well as discourse analysis. The package is actually made up of 3 main tools or components: the Concord tool, the WordList tool, and the KeyWords tool.
The Concord utility discovers and compiles concordances for given words or search phrases within a specified text or set of texts. This can have multiple uses, including an improved contextual understanding of the specified word/words, the identification of usage patterns, or even to unearth references in a research situation. This tool is supported by the WordList utility, which goes over a text and extracts a comprehensive, alphabetized or frequency-ordered list of the words in it for easy reference. The WordList in turn is supported by the KeyWords tool, which uses word lists as databases from which to compile statistical data and identify what are known as “key words” in corpus linguistics.
The software is available in a free version where data searches using the tools packaged into it are restricted to a certain number of results per search or command. For unlimited searches, users need to get the paid version.Find the official WordSmith Tools download
