# Text Analysis to analyze qualitative (text based) Survey Results

I ran a survey asking this question: 'What do you like the most about your favorite character in the game?' and I got 23K responses; most of them are phrases/sentences; what's the best way to analyze these results such as to find out what the main responses are? A simple word cloud may not do because it strips out the context by isolating words; but I'm open. Would love help. Didn't know how to attached the dataset (my first time on Stack-Ex) so [here][1] it is. Thanks in advance fellow coders/analysts.

• Check out Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA). It's a probabilistic model for words that sorts words and responses into a pre-determined number of topics. – TBSRounder Mar 23 '16 at 19:48
• Sentiment Analysis might be another option, check out the syuzhet package in R. – DaBenski Mar 23 '16 at 21:08
• you can add the link as [link](http://example.com), what is your base point to decide the main responses are ?, do you want classification of the sentences into positive and negative sentence? – krishna Prasad Apr 23 '16 at 3:34
• you can always compute n-grams for your corpus and determine their frequency so that they can be displayed in a word cloud (or more accurately a phrase cloud). – Brandon Loudermilk Jun 21 '16 at 23:07
