Quantitative Discourse Analysis Package (qdap) is an R package for computer assisted qualitative data analysis, particularly quantitative discourse analysis, transcript analysis and natural language processing. Qdap is installable from, and runs within, the R system.

Qdap is a tool for quantitative analysis of qualitative transcripts and therefore provides a bridge between quantitative and qualitative research approaches. It is designed for transcript analysis, but its features overlap with natural language processing and text mining.
