Plots a specific Multiple Correspondence Analysis (resulting from `speMCA`

function), i.e. the clouds of individuals or categories.

```
# S3 method for speMCA
plot(x, type = "v", axes = c(1,2), points = "all", col = "dodgerblue4", app = 0, ...)
```

## Arguments

- x
object of class `speMCA`

- type
character string: 'v' to plot the categories (default), 'i' to plot individuals' points, 'inames' to plot individuals' names

- axes
numeric vector of length 2, specifying the components (axes) to plot (c(1,2) is default)

- points
character string. If 'all' all points are plotted (default); if 'besth' only those who contribute most to horizontal axis are plotted; if 'bestv' only those who contribute most to vertical axis are plotted; if 'besthv' only those who contribute most to horizontal or vertical axis are plotted; if 'best' only those who contribute most to the plane are plotted.

- col
color for the points of the individuals or for the labels of the categories (default is 'dodgerblue4')

- app
numerical value. If 0 (default), only the labels of the categories are plotted and their size is constant; if 1, only the labels are plotted and their size is proportional to the weights of the categories; if 2, points (triangles) and labels are plotted, and points size is proportional to the weight of the categories.

- ...
further arguments passed to or from other methods, such as cex, cex.main, ...

## Details

A category is considered to be one of the most contributing to a given axis if its contribution is
higher than the average contribution, i.e. 100 divided by the total number of categories.
