The icing on the cake - combining relational and semantic methods to extract meaning from online message board postings

. However, studies that combine different methods are scarce . This holds in particular for studies that focus on relational (using social network analysis) and interpretational information (using for example semantic maps). To our knowledge, studies that employ both methods are lacking. With this paper, we want to contribute to the literature by proposing a way to combine both approaches. We illustrate the approach with data from an online community, and discuss implications for researchers.
