Rho-grams and rho-sets: Significant links in the web of words

AbstractMuch of the quantitative work undertaken in stylistic analysis has to do with word frequencies—usually the relative frequencies of an appropriate set of single word-types. Those who have sought to go further by choosing word-types that tend to ‘go together’ have taken sequence and close proximity as their criteria. But many words display similar patterns of frequency without necessarily meeting those criteria: sets of grammatical associates, deictic features, archaisms, colloquialisms, Latinisms, and many others.

Parsa: An open information extraction system for Persian

AbstractThis article presents Parsa as an open information extraction (OIE) system for Persian. Comparing with advanced English approaches, OIE has just started to develop in other languages. Existing systems apply information about the grammar and syntactic structures of the target language to gain domain independence (which is a key goal in OIE). To improve modeling these complex structures, Parsa introduces a novel set of Patterns based on tree format. The patterns also enable Parsa to define POS tags, and lexical constraints to reduce incorrect matches.

Christopher Marlowe: Hype and Hoax

AbstractThis paper makes use of new tables that provide a comprehensive survey of authorship attributions derived from the Rolling Delta feature of R Stylo. Its main subject is the analysis of the Marlowe corpus and other plays connected to Marlowe. The two Tamburlaines and Locrine turn out to be sole-authored Marlowe plays. The core plays of the Marlowe corpus are largely un-Marlovian in their style and this casts further doubts on his authorship, going well beyond the assessment of Marlowe by Dabbs. But Marlowe was not a phantom.
