Display the context of the word.




  • Selected Documents

    A Corpus instance.


Concordance finds the queried word in a text and displays the context in which this word is used. It can output selected documents for further analysis.

  1. Information:
    • Documents: number of documents on the input.
    • Tokens: number of tokens on the input.
    • Types: number of unique tokens on the input.
    • Matching: number of documents containing the queried word.
  2. Number of words: the number of words displayed on each side of the queried word.
  3. Queried word.
  4. If Auto commit is on, selected documents are communicated automatically. Alternatively press Commit.


Concordance can be used for displaying word contexts in a corpus. First, we load in Corpus. Then we connect Corpus to Concordances and search for concordances of a word “doctor”. The widget displays all documents containing the word “doctor” together with their surrounding (contextual) words. Note that the widget finds only exact matches of a word.

Now we can select those documents that contain interesting contexts and output them to Corpus Viewer to inspect them further.
