An advantage of corpus-based language studies is that global descriptions of linguistic texts can be obtained by examining a broad range of linguistic features. However, multivariate statistical techniques are required to analyze the multiple linguistic features found in a number of texts. This study compared the strengths and weaknesses of several multivariate statistical techniques, thereby demonstrating the effectiveness of using heat map with hierarchical clustering as a powerful method for visualizing multivariate data. Explanations are also provided for how these techniques can be used in the R programming language as well as indicating how the results obtained can be interpreted.
