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.
To download the development version of qdap:
Download the zip ball or tar ball, decompress and run
R CMD INSTALL on it, or use the devtools package to install the development version:
# install.packages("devtools") library(devtools) install_github("trinker/qdapDictionaries") install_github("trinker/qdapRegex") install_github("trinker/qdapTools") install_github("trinker/qdap")
Note: Windows users need Rtools and devtools to install this way.

Thanks for building this package- I’ve been enjoying the functionality.
Certainly. I appreciate the feedback and if you have suggestions or improvements feel free to let me know at: https://github.com/trinker/qdap/issues
Error in library(devtools) : there is no package called ‘devtools’
> install_github(“qdap”, “trinker”)
Error: could not find function “install_github”
wat to do now bro this doesnt worked out in R console
You missed the line: install.packages(“devtools”). I’m guessing you’re newer to R. I’d highly suggest you check out two resources I really found helpful: The intro manual (http://cran.wustl.edu/doc/manuals/R-intro.pdf) and the Quick-R cite (http://www.statmethods.net/). The Quick-R author, Kabacoff, is a very helpful and has written a book called R in Action that I also like a ton.
That’s really helpful!!! Yup, we are new to R. Thank you!
Hi Tyler! I am new to R and I am using it for my school project to conduct sentiment analysis on news articles. Which package would you recommend? qdap or sentimentr?:) In addition, do these packages take into account negation words/valance shifters? Thanks for your help in advance and looking forward to your reply!
For sentiment analysis I’d use sentimentr. it spun off of qdap but has vast improvements in accuracy and optimization as well as better user experience.
