Version V1

This textual data collection contains computer-readable texts of speeches in the British Parliament and in the German Reichstag in the period 1870-1914 and 1871-1921, respectively, to enable content analysis. Also included are two British equivalence files. The first equivalence file, British Speech Full Equivalence Deck, includes (a) geographic equivalences, (b) General Inquirer political dictionary, and (c) words from the British text equivalence under either (a) or (b). The second equivalence file, British Speech Equivalence Deck, Geographic Only, is a shortened version of the first equivalence file with about one hundred keywords in three dimensions: geographic, affect, and strength. A computer analysis program called DICTION is available for use with these texts.
