Computational Analysis and Visualization of Old English Text: Some Preliminary Analysis

Abstract: We explore string comparison, graph theory, and dimensional analysis and their implications in computational textual analysis. In the process, we develop some expectations that can be tested on a large text such asĀ Beowulf, though we only lay out those expectations and do not test them due to the computational requirements for doing so. We draw from Old English vocabulary for our examples.
