    DEAR ALL,

    My study is mainly qualitative. i analyse naturally occurring talk. however, I intend to provide frequency counts for a phenomenon that is featuring many times in my data. if these frequency counts are coded into categories, does this oblige me to state these categories as variables under the form of a hypothesis that i have to formulate at the beginning of my study?
