Automated text analysis in psychology: methods, applications, and future developments

2014 Language and Cognition  
While this development has mainly been driven by computer scientists and computational linguists, such methods can be of great value for social scientists in general, and for psychologists in particular  ...  After describing some of the pros and cons of these methods, we speculate about future methodological developments, and how they might change social sciences.  ...  A promising example in this regard comes from Dam and Kaufmann ( 2008 ) , who applied LSA to interview transcripts of seventh graders who were asked about the cause of seasons on the Earth.  ...
