Four Columns - adding a term within a column creates an "or" statement; going across a column creates an "and" statement; using the fourth column creates a "not" statement.
Create and run algorithm.
Review algorithm, eliminate garbage words by using fourth column, re-run algorithm.
Inspect summary results.
Inspect saliency, 2gram and 3gram results.
Modify algortihm, repeat.
Inspect summary results and select sample to read in context. Add relevant terms to algorithm.
For “inner experience” you can broaden the search by using
inner /3 exper*
internal /3 exper*
To expose the constructed analyzers, add ?admin to the supplied Self-Directed Analyzer url.
This feature can be used to identify and eliminate garbage collected by a wildcard (*) search, simply add terms to be excluded to the fourth column of the analyzer.
The Self-Directed Analyzer has been temporarily locked to use the rationalized Lonergan corpus as the target set and the reference set. A new feature is being developed that will allow the user to set the target and reference sets independently. Until this feature is introduced, there is no need or opportunity to set the Doc Set ID.
The Crivella West team is working on a feature that will reveal the metadata for a KEID number, such as title, author and date of publication. A link to an excel file with a list of the KEID numbers for the rationalized Lonergan corpus is provided at the bottom of this page.

Definition of Terms
Reference Set - set of texts used to define the expected frequency of terms.
Target Set - set of texts that are analyzed.
Result Set - a set of excerpts selected from the target set by an algorithm.
Rationalized Corpus - set of an author's available works that has eliminated duplications due to multiple printings or editions.
The saliency function in the Self-Directed Analyzer analyzes the frequency of terms found in the result set against the frequency of terms found in the reference set to determine which occur with significantly varied frequency.
