TAPoR Portal Recipes


This page describes common or interesting sequences of actions, or recipes, for the TAPoR portal. They are organized according to the objective of the recipe. Recipes fall into the three categories of location and identification of ideas, themes or specific terms; analysis of textual devices or themes; or the construction of new entities or corpus. There are also a set of three tutorial recipes included to introduce three common and specific tasks using TAPoR Tools.

The TAPoR community benefits from shared experience and learning how others make use of the portal. You can share your experience by adding your own recipes to the collection. More information about recipe and exercise structure and authoring is available on the RecipeStructure page. We also have a Glossary that we hope you will add to.

If you feel you can improve a recipe, or find a problem with an existing recipe, please edit the existing recipe and indicate your name and the date at the bottom of the modified recipe or exercise. To edit a recipe you must be registered with TADA, but this is a relatively painless task and can be accomplished simply by messaging Stéfan Sinclair. If you have hints, tips or would simply like to comment on how a recipe has worked for you, please add a comment at the bottom of the page in the comments box. This does not require a TADA account.
