Note: Reading knowledge of Chinese probably required.

Goal: To find or prepare works of Chinese in the pre-Qin dynasty for word analysis and treatment by tools of computational linguistics.

Steps to achieve goal:

Step 1 Find online and download many pre-Qin and Han Dynasty texts, including texts such as: Liji; Xunzi; Xiaojing; Shuoyuan; Chunqiufanlu; Hanshiwaizhuan; dadailiji; Mozi; Daodejing; Zhuangzi; and more. (I do NOT need Analects & Mengzi; they are complete).

Obstacle A: Difficult to find online copies of pre-Qin works, for examples or , that do not include lots of unnecessary, problematic formatting. Find or convert documents to text files.

2 Insert in-text markers after each chapter or section of each text downloaded in step 1, for example drop in the characters "@#" after each chapter. I say 'chapter' or 'section' because , for example, has 305 separate poems, and each should be preceded by "@#" to allow for separate statistical analysis.
