  1. Never mind. I figured it out -- the pronouns are (by default) stop words -- I thought stop words were only used by default for word frequency queries. I just went to File/Project Properties/General and hit "stop words" then removed the pronouns from the stop words.
  2. I wish to (1) run a text search query that looks for male/female pronouns by sentence and then (2) compare word frequencies in sentences with male pronouns only and female pronouns only -- in other words, I want to see the types of words (e.g., "cook" "sports") that tend to co-occur in gendered sentences. Problem: The text search query tool does not seem to look for pronouns. When I type any pronoun (e.g., "she") into the text search box, I get no results. I can search for gendered nouns (e.g., "woman" "man") just fine, but I get no return for pronouns even though the transcripts contain pronouns. Version: I've tried using NVivo 11 and 12 for Windows -- both seem to have this shortcoming. Is this the case or am I doing something wrong? ScreenCapture_NVivo_Pronouns.tiff
  3. Hi Bhupesh, Thanks for your reply. (1) When I run a cluster analysis on sets, the diagram shows all the sources in that set (e.g., all interviews)-- the analysis looks the same as selecting all sources -- it does not compare set vs set (e.g., School 1 vs School 2). Am I doing something wrong? (2) Matrix queries have been useful for comparing cases, but I'd hoped there was a way to run a cluster analysis. I guess I could export it to Excel for the cluster analysis. best, Lisa
  4. The two options for cluster analysis appear to be Source and Node. Is it possible to do a cluster analysis for sources that I've grouped using case classification attributes? For example, let's say School 1, School 2, School 3, ... n each have a # of sources (records, interviews, etc.). I made these sources into cases, then assigned the names of schools as case classification attributes (so School 1 is the attribute value for all its sources and so forth). I want to see which schools (= its collection of sources) have similar coding.
