Abstract : Using text statistics for qualitative analysis is surely a paradox-counting words in an approach where" numbers doesn't count". Hence, we were stunned by the repeated expectation of text mining features from the users of our qualitative analysis platform. Reluctant at first to methodological hybridizations that could be seen as flawed, we then had to admit that even the founders of qualitative analysis envisioned qualitative ways to use statistics. Counts cannot be regarded as proofs by qualitative analyzers, but as clues for an interpretation, as incentives to look closer at the materials. To achieve this goal, we designed a new visualization of text statistics, displayed in the text without any numbers nor tables.
