An experimental approach to the construction/reconstruction, interpretation and comparison of textual ideological systems will be employed in this lecture. A bounded corpus consisting of four major social novels by the Tagalog novelist Lazaro Francisco (1898-1980) will be subjected to what might be called "collocation network analysis," wherein Tagalog political concepts which co-instantiate as collocates (within a limited textual span) are connected as nodes in a lexical network. Comparative analysis will then be used to develop a sharper and more distinct outline of what may be called an example of "Tagalog conservative thought."
