Hi, I need some statistical analysis done on the fiction books: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
I will email you these books in Word format for ease of analysis.
You must have excellent english ability.
You will be using Excel to record the results.
This is a 2 stage task:
Stage 1 is a Chapter analysis. Stage 2 is a dialogue and time/place analysis.
STAGE 1 -- CHAPTER ANALYSIS:
1/ List the chapters for books one and two in rows going downwards on the left hand side in an
2/ Create columns along the top, and compute the answers for the following per chapter:
The Flesch–Kincaid reading ease
The Flesch–Kincaid grade level
FOR EXAMPLE, THIS IS HOW YOUR SPREADSHEET SHOULD LOOK:
Philosopher’s Stone | WC | FK Reading | FK Grade | Opening Sentence | Closing Sentence
1. The Boy who
STAGE 2 -- DIALOGUE ANALYSIS
Go through the books and create a list of every dialogue adjective used, and then list them alphabetically. E.g. for these two lines:
“Shoo” said Mr Dursely loudly.
"That's not true” said Ron bitterly.
You would add the words loudly, and bitterly to your list.
Don’t include the whole sentence, just the word(s) that describes HOW something was said.
Don’t just do a search on “ly” either as this will not lead you to every adjective.
TIME and PLACE analysis
Create a list and sort it alphabetically on the first letter of these sentences:
I want sentences that tell the reader that we are at a new time or place. Anything that is related to time passing should be included.
A few moments later
Harry awoke the next morning
Over the next few days
The same applies to Places (there will be less of these):
As they reached the classroom,
The castle gate was open
They were at the edge of the forest
Often, a sentence will include both a TIME and PLACE transition e.g.
“Ten minutes later they arrived at Hagrid’s hut.”
Try to include these in the TIME list.
END RESULT: A spreadsheet on the two books, a list of dialogue adjectives, and lists of Time and Place transitions.
Hello, I am from the early part of the generation that grew up reading and hearing about these books. I also tend to be careful and patient when doing research. I can do this, please see the PM for more details.
