Welcome to DOCTR

Discovery of Conversational Text Redundance (DOCTR) is a free software package that can be used to research various turn-to-turn dynamics as two or more entities engage each other. DOCTR is  able to process text and produce meaningful indices of shared language and behavior, allowing for the quantification of language-based group behaviors.

DOCTR has been created with the purpose of determining the ways in which language is shared, propagated, sourced, and repeated during dynamic group interactions. Additionally, this is a very flexible package, made to be scalable, such that users may answer other research questions, such as how an individual’s language may change over time, or how narratives develop.
