text2map: R Tools for Text Matrices

This is an R Package with libraries and utility functions for computational text analysis for the social sciences.

The functions are optimized for working with various kinds of text matrices. Focusing on the text matrix as the primary object – which is represented either as a base R dense matrix or a Matrix package sparse matrix – allows for a consistent and intuitive interface that stays close to the underlying mathematical foundation of computational text analysis. In particular, the package includes functions for working with word embeddings, text networks, and document-term matrices.

Related text datasets are available on GitLab in text2map.corpora and text dictionaries are available in text2map.dictionaries.
