Title:

    Gradus: Revealing the Shape of the English Language

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Is there a way to make a meaningful shape from a collection of the indi­vidual words of the English language? What would that shape look like? Why would this approach be preferable to a traditional representation — a printed dictionary, for example? These were among the questions we asked when we set out to visualize the English language as a single entity.
