Week 8 Discussion 1

There are two techniques for assessment which are, qualitative and quantitative. The point of qualitative analysis is a finished depiction. No endeavor is made to allocate frequencies to the semantic components which are recognized in the information, and uncommon wonders gets (or ought to get) the same measure of consideration as more continuous marvels. Qualitative analysis takes into consideration fine refinements to be drawn in light of the fact that it is not important to shoehorn the information into a limited number of arrangements. Ambiguities, which are innate in human dialect, can be perceived in the analysis. For instance, “red” could be utilized as a part of a corpus to connote the shading red, or as a political categorization. 
On the contrary, in quantitative exploration, there is group highlighting, numbering them, and even develop more perplexing factual models trying to clarify what is watched. Discoveries can be summed up to a bigger populace, and direct examinations can be made between two corporations, insofar as substantial inspecting and important strategies have been utilized. In this manner, quantitative analysis permits us to find which marvels are liable to be veritable impressions of the conduct of a dialect or assortment, and which are simply risk occurrences. The more fundamental undertaking of simply taking a gander at a solitary dialect assortment permits one to get an exact picture of the recurrence and uncommonness of specific marvels, and in this way their relative ordinariness or abnormality.

Quantitative analysis is along these lines a glorification of the information sometimes. Additionally, quantitative analysis tends to sideline uncommon occurrences.
