What is concordance?
Concordance , according to linguists concordance is a form of cross-reference between different parts of a sentence or phrase.
Now, I’m going to show how to use antconc. Trust me, this tutorial is simple. Just follow all of these steps :
*make sure you have download it. 🙂
Open the file antconc3.0.1.exe.
Click on “file, open.”
In this example, I have opened a corpus text file called “ihad.txt” by double clicking on the file. The file name appears in the left-hand window. *Corpus, is a long-text file that used in antconc to analyze it.
In my case, I was assigned to analyze the speech of Martin Luther King Jr. entitled I Have a Dream. As pronounced to the march on Washington, DC, 28 August 1963. So, his speech is my corpus that will be used in antconc.
here are the links for his speech :
You may start your analysis on any items whether it’s Concordance, Concordance Plot, File View, Clusters, Collocates, Word List, and Keyword List.
After I choose the items,I keyed “enter” on my keyboard to build the concordance , word list or another items. (You can also click on “start.”)
THAT’S ALL. easy, isn’t? So now, lets work it out. ^^ HWAITING !!
