Abstract

This paper presents a tool to visualize a cognitive model of human discourse processing known as Text World Theory (TWT) which is used to facilitate forensic discourse analysis. XML files are designed based on a linguistic annotation scheme. It encompasses the range of descriptive categories defined in TWT. Epicurus is a tool that can parse and visualize those XML files into HTML. The tool is designed for ease of language data annotation and to facilitate evidential analysis by i) visualizing the complex narratives (text-worlds) projected from any given forensic text and ii) reconstructing and visualizing reported events in timeline fashion.
