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.
