cwbtools: Tools to Create, Modify and Manage 'CWB' Corpora
The 'Corpus Workbench' ('CWB', <https://cwb.sourceforge.io/>) offers a classic and mature
approach for working with large, linguistically and structurally annotated corpora. The 'CWB'
is memory efficient and its design makes running queries fast, see Evert (2011)
<https://eprints.lancs.ac.uk/id/eprint/62721>. The 'cwbtools' package offers
pure 'R' tools to create indexed corpus files as well as high-level wrappers for the original 'C'
implementation of 'CWB' as exposed by the 'RcppCWB' package
(<https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=RcppCWB>). Additional functionality to add and
modify annotations of corpora from within 'R' makes working with 'CWB' indexed corpora
much more flexible and convenient. The 'cwbtools' package in combination with the 'R' packages
'RcppCWB' (<https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=RcppCWB>) and 'polmineR'
(<https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=polmineR>) offers a lightweight infrastructure
to support the combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches for working
with textual data.
