The Lemma Sorted Concordance to the Malaga Corpus of Late Middle English Scientific Prose

» Index » Concordance

Concordance Manager is an online application which serves to visualize the concordances generated with TexSEn. The application employs PHP language with MySQL database access.

Main Features

The concordances are displayed in terms of lemma. The program applies a specific format/style to the data, when displayed on screen, so as to procure a clearer reading of the results. The main results are organized into five columns: a) Lemma; b) -1 (the first preceding word); c) keyword (the word entry); d) +1 (the first following word); and e) reference.


For the sake of successful reading and screen-visualization, concordances are generated with five words to the right and to the left of the lemma/keyword. If a larger context for the lemma is desired, it can be generated through TexSEn with the "Lemma-sorted KWIC concordance builder"; and if you wish to visualize the whole phrases, go to the list of lemmas and phrases.

When the selected lemma has many registers, they are generated on a number of different pages, each one displaying a total of 200 registers. Below the bottom left corner of the table, navigation buttons are included to move through the different pages.

The layout of the table displayed on screen is the following. The first cell of each row holds the lemma (in blue) and the cells to the right, the keyword's pre-context. Next, the keyword is offered in central position (in red) and to the right the keyword's post-context. Although the number of words in the pre- and post-context can be changed when generating the concordances, it is commonly kept the same for all the lemmas in a table. Finally, the text's reference is provided with the page (p italicized and in superscript) or folio (r or v italicized and in superscript) number and the line of the given paragraph.

By default, the results are always displayed according to the original ordering of the words in the text, not alphabetically. However, they can be alphabetically sorted in terms of keyword, previous word (-1), or following word (+1) by clicking on the icon () appearing on top of the aforementioned columns.
