N2 - Techniques for extracting place names (toponyms) from texts andusing them to conduct analyses of the geographies within the texts are becomingreasonably well established. These are generally referred to as GeographicalText Analysis (GTA) and allow us to ask questions about the geographies withina corpus. The problem with this approach is that the geographies that canbe uncovered are solely associated with toponyms for which a coordinate-basedlocation can be found. While this method is valuable, it is effectively aquantitative representation of the geographies associated with named places.Other representations of geography are ignored. To complement GTA, we needto develop techniques that are capable of representing the more qualitativerepresentations of geography that are found within texts. Drawing on the Corpusof Lake District Writing, this paper presents some initial ideas about how thiscan be achieved, primarily by using techniques from corpus linguistics.
