CAVALLERO, Pablo A.. Las ideas-clave de Los Nombres Divinos de Pseudo Dionisio según el uso léxico. Temas Mediev. [online]. 2004, vol.12, pp. 131-145. ISSN 1850-2628.
In the morphological and lexical analysis of The divine names we had found certain seemingly important themes. Now we shall attempt to reach a more accurate approach to these themes, looking for key-ideas by applying a quantitative or frequency method. The analysis comprises three aspects: for one the valuaion of the hápax contained in the treatise, words used only once and only in this text by Dionysius, which in many cases are neologisms; secondly the valuation of words which, although rarely, appear more than once but exclusively in The divine names but not in the remainder of the Corpus, and finally those words which are used most often in the text. By this quantitative or frequency method of analysis we have been able to confirm objectively, which themes are repeated and relevant on the basis of the morphemes and radicals employed by the author, thus allowing us to establish the main ideas, objectives and methodology of the treatise. Just as in a previous study the statistical analysis of prepositions and conjunctions allowed us to evaluate the syntactical style and medieval tendencies of the language, now we can see the weight of each key-idea within de treatise and in relationship with the remainder of the Corpus.
