The aim of this paper is to analyze a set of texts (hearing) in terms of their collocations and connotations. In this study, a word is considered a basic unit of the analysis. The researcher attempts to deconstruct the meaning of some selected words found in the hearing (communication event). Machine learning will be employed to identify the target words and their collocations.

Keywords: Discourse analysis, Collocations, Connotation

 Aim: to analyze the key terms (vocabulary) derived from the hearing on digital assets. 

This analyses include the following:

1. Collocation analysis
2. Sentiment Analysis (Deep AI)
3. Connotation Analysis
4. Representational Analysis

Connotations of the key terms - Negative , Neutral, or Positive.

"Digital assets" is this term negative or positive in the hearing?

"Cryptocurrencies" + or - or neutral?

Lexical chain?
and Connotations


The language of new money is another opportunity of understand the new knowledge coming into existence. Because the vocabulary is NEW, we do not fully understand what they mean and their meanings are flexible.

AI and Dialogflow Conversation Agents By Janpha Thadphoothon While I was having my favorite cup of coffee (Americano), I browsed through Facebook and Google, which happed to make my coffee taste bitter. I came upon a question asked by someone and the question struck my attention. It had won my attention. That question is about artificial intelligence (AI) and chatbots.
