Week 7 Journal

This week was difficult for me as I was at a swim meet all weekend and so I was playing catch up with my work. We learned a lot this week and it was a lot of information for me to take in.

One thing we worked on was Ben Blatt’s Nabokov’s Favorite Word is Mauve and I was really intrigued by a lot of what we looked at. I found the data that was collected to be very interesting, particularly the breakdown of emoji usage by gender. It was interesting to see what words each gender used more often even though none of them were really surprising.

I really liked when we started looking at the tools used to determine which author wrote a specific book. I liked it because I followed the J.K. Rowling story with her other novels. It was cool to see exactly how they determined which novels she wrote and what they were looking for as far as similarities go.

I am not sure of any questions for research right now. I have been looking more in-depth at some of the tools that I could use but I still haven’t been able to determine any of the questions I would like to explore.
