The present paper describes a software toolset developed to assist in making textual analyses and comparisons between and within corpora. This system (Posit) aims to make the textual analysis process as simple as possible by requiring only asingle command from the user. The adopted approach seeks to accommodate arbitrarily large corpora. This contrasts with many current tools that are limited in their ability to handle very large file sizes. In the following, we detail the current part-of-speech focus of this toolset and describe developments in progress that will extend its functionality to embrace vocabulary and readability profiling.
