Established by Dr Mark Perkins, the company employs a model based on principles from Discourse Stream Analysis (DSA) © created in his linguistic research. This model combines aspects of corpus linguistics and systemic functional linguistics together with unique insights about the nature of real-time text flows. In addition, a systematic methodology is employed in the definition of concepts.
Repindex owns a large number of concepts which are continually being updated. These are used in Repindex Forecasting and in our Document Inspection application where Repindex creates a concept map of the document which enables fast review.
Overall, Repindex is intended to implement the vision of describing and measuring messages in texts in real, historical, or simulated time. In contrast with other information-based approaches, Repindex takes account of linguistic features and dimensions such as modality (social distance and probability), affective meaning, time, positivity and negativity, and semantic aspects of grammatical structure.
