Lexicoder is a Java-based, multi-platform software for automated content analysis of text. Lexicoder was developed by Lori Young and Stuart Soroka, and programmed by Mark Daku (initially at McGill University, and now at Penn, Michigan, and McGill respectively).
The current version of the software (2.0) is freely available – for academic use only. Additions and revisions will also be released here as they become available. In addition, the Lexicoder Sentiment Dictionary, a dictionary designed to capture the sentiment of political texts, is available formatted for Lexicoder, or WordStat, and also adaptable to other content-analytic software. Work on Topic Dictionaries, based on the Policy Agendas coding scheme, is also underway.
