Concordance (TAPoR)

"TAPoRware is a set of text analysis tools that enables users to perform text analysis on HTML, XML and plain text files, using documents from the users' machine or on the web". Concordance is one of the tools developed under the TAPoR umbrella. Concordance allows users to locate specific words or phrases within the context of a chosen text document. Once the word or phrase has been selected, the program scans the document and produces a report. This reports this all of the instances where the word or phrase occurred and provides several words of context both before and after the search terms. This helps the user to not only have a quantitative understanding of the occurrences but also a contextualized knowledge of how they appear.
