I'm proud to introduce macroetym, a command-line tool for macro-etymological textual analysis, which is now available for download with the Python package manager, pip. It's a complete rewrite of The Macro-Etymological Analyzer, the web tool for macro-etymological analysis I wrote a few years ago, first described in this post, and presented at DH2014. It can now analyze any number of texts, and texts in 250 languages. Here are a few examples of the program in action:
A simple comparative macro-etymological analysis of two texts
A more verbose analysis of a single text
An analysis of all the books of Paradise Lost
Analysis of texts in languages other than English
Install macroetym using pip3:
Alternatively, grab the source code on GitHub and install locally:
Macroetym is free and open-source software! There are a number of open issues with the program that need addressing. If you know a bit of python, feel free to hack around on the code as you see fit. Pull requests are very welcome. Non-code contributions are also welcome in the form of bug reports, documentation, or experiments in text analysis that use the program.
