This morning I was scrolling through Twitter and noticed Alberto Cairo share this lovely data visualization piece by Adam J. Calhoun about the varying prevalence of punctuation in literature. I thought, “I want to do that!” It also offers me the opportunity to chat about a few of the new options available for tokenizing in tidytext via updates to the tokenizers package.
Adam’s original piece explores how punctuation is used in nine novels, including my favorite Pride and Prejudice.
