As past and present technical, scientific, literary books and documents are digitalized, more sophisticated tools are required for exploring this textual ocean.

Even text mining strategies have not been satisfying for CARAT. For indeed, the aim of serious CARAT is more complex. Its ultimate objective is assisting the interpretation of texts.
