Title: Introduction to the TextmineR Package for R
Author(s): Thomas Jones*
Companies: Impact Research
Keywords: text mining ; natural language ; software ; R ; sparse matrices

textmineR introduces a framework for natural language processing (NLP) in R that improves upon current NLP frameworks available in R. Specifically, textmineR has a syntax that is more intuitive to experienced R users. It uses objects, methods, and functions that behave like regular R dense matrices. This lowers the barrier to beginning statistical analyses of language to statisticians and other data professionals. textmineR also implements diagnostic and analysis methods for topic models.
