Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/sentomeasures_methods.R

Description

Plotting method that shows all sentiment measures from the provided sento_measures object in one plot, or the average along one of the lexicons, features and time weighting dimensions.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'sento_measures'
plot(x, group = "all", ...)

Arguments

x

a sento_measures object created using sento_measures.

group

a value from c("lexicons", "features", "time", "all"). The first three choices display the average of all measures from the same group, in a different color. The choice "all" displays every single sentiment measure in a separate color, but this may look visually overwhelming very fast, and can be quite slow.

...

not used.

Value

Returns a simple ggplot object, which can be added onto (or to alter its default elements) by using the + operator (see example). By default, a legend is positioned at the top if there are at maximum twelve line graphs plotted and group is different from "all".
