A dataset containing Colin Martindale's (1975, 1990) English Regressive Imagery Dictionary (RID). The Regressive Imagery Dictionary (RID) is a text analysis coding taxonomy that can be used to measure the degree to which a text is primordial vs. conceptual. This acts as a proxy for assessing the illuctioner's mental thinking in producing the text. This dictionary is essentially a bucketed grouping of regexes' The main level of bucketing is thinking and is either primordial vs. conceptual. Under the primordial group is the primary process group while the conceptual thinking includes secondary and emotional process groups. These can be further broken into categories and subcategories (subcategories for primary process only). Comparing the percentages of the buckets provides insight into the writer's thinking. This particular list was taken from https://github.com/jefftriplett/rid.py.

category. A level of bucketing lower than process
subcategory. A level of bucketing lower than category (only applies to rimary process)
regex. An associated search regex
