Analyzing Stylistic Variation across Different Political Regimes

  title={Analyzing Stylistic Variation across Different Political Regimes},
  author={Liviu P. Dinu and Ana Sabina Uban},
In this article we propose a stylistic analysis of texts written across two different periods, which differ not only temporally, but politically and culturally: communism and democracy in Romania. We aim to analyze the stylistic variation between texts written during these two periods, and determine at what levels the variation is more apparent (if any): at the stylistic level, at the topic level etc. We take a look at the stylistic profile of these texts comparatively, by performing clustering…

On the stylistic evolution from communism to democracy: Solomon Marcus study case

A stylistic analysis of Solomon Marcus’ non-scientific published texts, gathered in six volumes, aims to uncover some of his quantitative and qualitative fingerprints, revealing that the passing from the communist regime period to democracy is sharply marked by two complementary changes in Marcus' writing.

How Variable May a Constant be? Measures of Lexical Richness in Perspective

The results suggest that the empirical trajectories tap into a considerable amount of authorial structure without, however, guaranteeing that spatial separation implies a difference in authorship.

Exploiting Stylistic Idiosyncrasies for Authorship Attribution

Introduction Early researchers in authorship attribution used a variety of statistical methods to identify stylistic discriminators – characteristics which remain approximately invariant within the

Pastiche Detection Based on Stopword Rankings. Exposing Impersonators of a Romanian Writer

We applied hierarchical clustering using Rank distance, previously used in computational stylometry, on literary texts written by Mateiu Caragiale and a number of different authors who attempted to

Inference in an Authorship Problem

Abstract This study has four purposes: to provide a comparison of discrimination methods; to explore the problems presented by techniques based strongly on Bayes' theorem when they are used in a data

Authorship Identification of Romanian Texts with Controversial Paternity

In this work we propose a new strategy for the authorship identification problem and we test it on an example from Romanian literature: did Radu Albala found the continuation of Mateiu Caragiale’s

New Machine Learning Methods Demonstrate the Existence of a Human Stylome

Traits referring to syntactic patterns prove less distinctive than traits referring to vocabulary, but much more distinctive than expected on the basis of current generativist theories of language learning.

Rank Distance as a Stylistic Similarity

This paper proposes a new distance function (rank distance) designed to reflect stylistic similarity between texts and tests it in two different machine learning settings: clustering and binary classification.

Authorship verification as a one-class classification problem

A new learning-based method for adducing the "depth of difference" between two example sets is presented and evidence that this method solves the authorship verification problem with very high accuracy is offered.

On the Classification and Aggregation of Hierarchies with Different Constitutive Elements

An aggregation method which can be applied to classifications having different vocabularies using the rank distance (Dinu, 2003), a metric which measures the similarity between two hierarchies based on the ranks of objects is presented.
