While specifically addressing dictionary validation, this article provides a step-by-step guide to researchers who want to develop, validate, and refine dictionaries for computer-aided text analysis. Researchers follow a two-phase (deductive and inductive) approach to dictionary development that helps maximize content validity of measures.
It was for this procedure that CAT Scanner’s “Inductive Word List Generation” tool was developed.
