qdap (Quantitative Discourse Analysis Package) is an R package designed to assist in quantitative discourse analysis. The package stands as a bridge between qualitative transcripts of dialogue and statistical analysis and visualization.

This is the first CRAN release of qdap: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/qdap/index.html

The qdap package automates many of the tasks associated with quantitative discourse analysis of transcripts containing discourse including frequency counts of sentence types, words, sentence, turns of talk, syllable counts and other assorted analysis tasks. The package provides parsing tools for preparing transcript data. Many functions enable the user to aggregate data by any number of grouping variables providing analysis and seamless integration with other R packages that undertake higher level analysis and visualization of text. This provides the user with a more efficient and targeted analysis.

Github development version: https://github.com/trinker/qdap

As qdap is further developed the following are planned: (a) a github hosted website via statics (b) a help video section and (c) a vignette detailing workflow and use of qdap.
