Collocation

Collocation is defined as “the act or result of placing or arranging together; specifically :  a noticeable arrangement or conjoining of linguistic elements (as words)”. Source: Merriam-Webster

In Visual Hasluck, we analyze patters of words that tend to appear in proximity to each other in “Christianity and Islam” to reveal links, patterns or relations between terms and semantic domains. For example, a collocation pattern showing that ‘orthodox’ tends to appear next to ‘George’ is seen as an indication of the widely common veneration of St. George among Christian Orthodox communities.

Interactive visualization

A very basic example is the movement of a mouse cursor on a computer screen that occurs when a user moves the physical mouse device.
