We present our submission to SemEval-2015 Task 7: Diachronic Text Evaluation, in which we approach the task of assigning a date to a text as a multi-class classification problem. We extract n-gram features from the text at the letter, word, and syntactic level, and use these to train a classifier on date-labeled training data. We also incorporate date(More)
Experiments on the detection of the source language of literary translations are described. Two feature types are exploited, n-gram based features and document-level statistics. Cross-validation results on a corpus of twenty 19th-century texts including translations from Russian, French, German and texts written in English are promising: single feature(More)
Research into the stylistic properties of translations is an issue which has received some attention in computational stylistics. Previous work by Rybicki (2006) on the distinguishing of character idiolects in the work of Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz and two corresponding English translations using Burrow's Delta method concluded that idiolectal(More)
This is the report for the CNGL ILT3 team entry to the HOO shared task. A Naive-Bayes-based classifier was used in the task which involved error detection and correction in ESL exam scripts. Our system placed 11th out of 14 teams for the detection and recognition tasks and 11th out of 13 teams for the correction task on the based on f-score for both(More)

Determining relevant content automatically is a challenging task for any ag-gregation system. In the business intelligence domain, particularly in the application area of Online Reputation Management , it may be desirable to label tweets as either customer comments which deserve rapid attention or tweets from industry experts or sources regarding the(More)
Recently there has been growing interest in the application of approaches from the text classification literature to fine-grained problems of textual stylometry. This paper seeks to answer a question which has concerned the translation studies community: how does a literary transla-tor's style vary across their translations of different authors?
