NotesOriginality: Describes the first known application of linguistic corpus analysis techniques to free-form summaries describing a participants understanding on a computer program. Rigour: Combines a number of highly detailed linguistic analysis techniques, including bigram analysis, to describe how diagrammatic representations affect program comprehension. Significance: Interdisciplinary research which uses linguistic analysis techniques in order to better characterise program comprehension. Analysis is much more detailed and finely-grained than previous program comprehension work using summary data. Impact: One of three papers selected from the Multidisciplinary Approaches to Discourse workshop (total of 16 full papers) to appear in this issue of Document Design.
