`dfm-class.Rd`

The dfm class of object is a type of Matrix-class object with
additional slots, described below. quanteda uses two subclasses of the
`dfm`

class, depending on whether the object can be represented by a
sparse matrix, in which case it is a `dfm`

class object, or if dense,
then a `dfmDense`

object. See Details.

The `dfm`

class is a virtual class that will contain
dgCMatrix-class.

`settings`

settings that govern corpus handling and subsequent downstream operations, including the settings used to clean and tokenize the texts, and to create the dfm. See

`settings`

.`weighting`

the feature weighting applied to the dfm. Default is

`"frequency"`

, indicating that the values in the cells of the dfm are simple feature counts. To change this, use the`dfm_weight`

method.`smooth`

a smoothing parameter, defaults to zero. Can be changed using the

`dfm_smooth`

method.`Dimnames`

These are inherited from Matrix-class but are named

`docs`

and`features`

respectively.
