I am currently writing my PhD thesis on the language of Finnish socialism, 1895-1918. I have two interesting data sets: the hand-written newspapers produced by ordinary working people and the printed newspapers. I have coded these hand-written newspapers into a mini-corpus of socialism. In addition, the National Library of Finland has digitized all the printed newspapers from 1820 to 1910 into a massive macro-corpus. I will explore the variation inside the socialist language and the differences between socialist and non-socialist languages of the time with quantitative and qualitative methods. The most useful quantitative methods I have used so far originate from corpus linguistics.
