Stylometry Stylometry is often used to attribute authorship to anonymous or disputed documents. It has legal as well as academic and literary applications, ranging from the question of the authorship of Shakespeare's works to forensic linguistics. History Stylometry grew out of earlier techniques of analyzing texts for evidence of authenticity, authorial identity, and other questions. An early example is Lorenzo Valla's 1439 proof that the Donation of Constantine was a forgery, an argument based partly on a comparison of the Latin with that used in authentic 4th Century documents. The basics of stylometry were set out by Polish philosopher Wincenty Lutosławski in Principes de stylométrie (1890).

One of the things that I want to do is a word count and frequency analysis on the entire blog.Now, I could go with good ol’ pen and paper and start counting every single word on the blog.

Graphing the history of philosophy « Drunks&Lampposts A close up of ancient and medieval philosophy ending at Descartes and Leibniz If you are interested in this data set you might like my latest post where I use it to make book recommendations. This one came about because I was searching for a data set on horror films (don’t ask) and ended up with one describing the links between philosophers. To cut a long story very short I’ve extracted the information in the influenced by section for every philosopher on Wikipedia and used it to construct a network which I’ve then visualised using gephi It’s an easy process to repeat. It could be done for any area within Wikipedia where the information forms a network.
Intro To Text Analysis With R Guest post by Christopher Johnson from www.codeitmagazine.com One of the most powerful aspects of using R is that you can download free packages for so many tools and types of analysis. Text analysis is still somewhat in its infancy, but is very promising. It is estimated that as much as 80% of the world’s data is unstructured, while most types of analysis only work with structured data. In this paper, we will explore the potential of R packages to analyze unstructured text.

As with any programming language, getting started with R involves a steep initial learning curve in order to produce useful results. In its current form, this blog contains the notes from a hands-on workshop that I initially ran at the University of Kansas's Digital Humanities Forum/THATCamp Representing Knowledge in the Digital Humanities in September of 2011 and expanded with a more literary focus at the (University of Kansas 2012 Digital Humanities Forum).
