MONK is an attempt to build on the earlier NORA and Wordhoard projects in their efforts to make data-mining and visualization systems available in forms that are congenial to humanities scholars, and that work across a wide range of digital collections. The Monk interface is made up of a multi-step system, designed for complex textual experimentation and analysis.
