CAMARGO, Brigido Vizeu  e  JUSTO, Ana Maria. IRAMUTEQ: a free software for analysis of textual data. Temas psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.21, n.2, pp.513-518. ISSN 1413-389X.

This note aims to present the software IRAMUTEQ (Interface de R pour les Analyses Multidimensionnelles de Textes et de Questionnaires), developed by Pierre Ratinaud (2009). This is a free program, anchored in R software; and it allows different means of textual statistics analysis in both textual material and tables (individuals by words). Developed originally in French, this software started to be used in Brazil in 2013. An experimental Portuguese dictionary is being improved, nevertheless it allows sufficiently accurate analyzes. The IRAMUTEQ enables different types of analysis: classical textual statistics; specificities of groups; descending hierarchical classification; analyzes of similarity and word cloud. Because of its statistical accuracy, of the distinct possibilities of analysis it allows us to carry out, of its simple and understandable interface, and especially because it is free; IRAMUTEQ can bring many contributions to humanities and social sciences, which are subject areas accustomed with working with symbolic content derived from textual materials as an important kind of research data.

Palavras-chave : Textual analysis; descendant hierarchical classification; IRAMUTEQ.
