This is the Old Saxon Heliand. This text is based primarily on the Monacensis manuscript, and follows the recension of Otto Behaghel. See Taeger (1984) for a critical apparatus.

The following statistical synopses are ASCII files, many of them
rather long. *Significance* refers to the question of whether
the frequency is significantly different from the frequency that
would be expected if the words co-occurred randomly.

The text contains 46283 tokens, 7724 word types, 123 punctuation types, 5983 lines.

Word-level bigrams: 40300 pair tokens in-line, 5982 across line boundaries. Average deviance (Observed - Expected) / Expected: within a line: 1.19988; across lines: -0.08511 (diff = -1.28499). Thus lines are relatively independent syntactic units, indicating a low degree of enjambment in the Heliand.

Statistical analyses:

- Concordance of words and bigrams, with frequencies, in alphabetical order.
- Concordance of words, by frequency.
- Bigrams that span line boundaries, by significance of frequency.
- Bigrams within lines, by significance of frequency.
- Longer phrases that occur often, by significance.

Perl 4 source code of the programs that produced the statistics. Here is the Perl4 program that converted the Heliand text to HTML format.
