LIWC: Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count

Testing LIWC Online

We understand completely. You are a student, a poor faculty member, or a researcher who wants to analyze a few cases without having to buy the LIWC program for almost $100. We've been there, and, because we know your plight, this page is for you. This is a no-frills page whereby you can enter text (by typing it directly or copying it from some other place and pasting it here) and get the basic LIWC output. All you have to do is enter the text file you want to analyze, press SUBMIT, and voila, we will give you feedback on some of the LIWC dimensions. That's the kind of people we are.

OK, we admit it. We aren't completely altruistic. We would like to keep a copy of your text files to add to our growing archive of 50,000+ files. To help us with our data, could you enter the age and gender of the author of the text (if you know it). If you don't know them or don't want to enter them, then choose 'No details' from the 'Gender of text author' selector.

Gender of author:       Age of author:
