Abstract : In this article, we have attempted to trace the history of the statistical analysis of textual data, focusing on the influence of Benzécri's work and school, and to make explicit their theoretical positions, clearly opposed to AI and to Chomskyan linguistics. After a presentation of the intellectual project, as an inductive approach to language based on the exploration of corpora, we present the principles of correspondence analysis, which is the main method developed in the Data Analysis School, used for corpus analysis but also for many other types of datasets. Then, we will focus on textual data analysis. Based on the fact that software programmes have played a major role in the use of these statistical techniques, we shall examine a selection of these, display their specificities and their underlying theoretical bases.
