Abstract

The article aims to show a practical procedure that can be used in the visualization of language data. The paper freely follows our previous articles about the visualization of language data in language pedagogy. We demonstrate how to retrieve language data – in our case from corpora, how to edit data in a spreadsheet program, and then in the last step, how to visualize it on the example of Legal Chinese and partly Legal German. The Javascript library Vis.js via Pyvis is chosen for the visualization of the language data.
