term_stats(x, filter = NULL, ngrams = NULL,
           min_count = NULL, max_count = NULL,
           min_support = NULL, max_support = NULL, types = FALSE,
           subset, ...)

Arguments

x

a text vector to tokenize.

filter

if non-NULL, a text filter to to use instead of the default text filter for x.

ngrams

an integer vector of n-gram lengths to include, or NULL for length-1 n-grams only.

min_count

a numeric scalar giving the minimum term count to include in the output, or NULL for no minimum count.

max_count

a numeric scalar giving the maximum term count to include in the output, or NULL for no maximum count.

min_support

a numeric scalar giving the minimum term support to include in the output, or NULL for no minimum support.

max_support

a numeric scalar giving the maximum term support to include in the output, or NULL for no maximum support.

types

a logical value indicating whether to include columns for the types that make up the terms.

subset

logical expression indicating elements or rows to keep: missing values are taken as false.

...

additional properties to set on the text filter.

Details

term_stats tokenizes a set of texts and computes the occurrence counts and supports for each term. The ‘count’ is the number of occurrences of the term across all texts; the ‘support’ is the number of texts containing the term. Each appearance of a term increments its count by one. Likewise, an appearance of a term in text i increments its support once, not for each occurrence in the text.

To include multi-type terms, specify the designed term lengths using the ngrams argument.

Value

A data frame with columns named term, count, and support, with one row for each appearing term. Rows are sorted in descending order according to support and then count, with ties broken lexicographically by term, using the character ordering determined by the current locale (see Comparison for details).

If types = TRUE, then the result also includes columns named type1, type2, etc. for the types that make up the term.
