*   Lexos <http://lexos.wheatoncollege.edu/upload> (free):
*   Word Tree<https://www.jasondavies.com/wordtree/> (free):

*   MALLET <http://mallet.cs.umass.edu/topics.php> (free): For topic modeling!

*   Python (free, but hard to learn): Python is a programming language that provides a ton of different libraries for doing Natural Language Processing, word embedding models, topic modeling, and more. Since it’s a programming language, the learning curve is much steeper. There are a lot of resources for learning Python and how to use it for writing analytics/computational text analysis. I have some computational essays in my dissertation<http://www.criticalfantoolkit.org/about_dissertation/computational_essays>, for instance!
