Abstract:

This book focusses on computer methodologies as a way of investigating
language and character in literary texts. Both theoretical and practical, it
surveys investigations into characterization in literary linguistics and
personality in social psychology, before carrying out a computational analysis
of Virginia Woolf’s experimental novel The Waves. Frequencies of grammatical
and semantic categories in the language of the six speaking characters are
analyzed using Wmatrix software developed by UCREL at Lancaster University.
The quantitative analysis is supplemented by a qualitative analysis into
recurring patterns of metaphor. The author concludes that these analyses
successfully differentiate all six characters, both synchronically and
diachronically, and claims that this methodology is also applicable to the
study of personality in non-literary language. The book, written in a clear
and accessible style, will be of interest to post-graduate students and
academics in linguistics, stylistics, literary studies, psychology and also
computational approaches.
