Subject: Re: [Humanist] 32.404: the question on Wikipedia >> I was hoping to read subscribers' experience with using Wikipedia (or Wikidata) as a computational tool. You might be interested in https://corpus.byu.edu/wiki/. The two billion word corpus allows users to search Wikipedia by word, phrase, part of speech, lemma, synonyms, collocates, and much more. In addition, users can very quickly and easily create a "Virtual Corpus" on any topic (e.g. biology, basketball, Buddhism) and then search that Virtual Corpus as though it were its own stand-alone corpus (and also compare frequencies and uses across their different Virtual Corpora). Full instructions available at the website.
