Über die Attribution hinaus

Forschungsperspektiven der Stilometrie als Anwendungsfeld in der Literaturwissenschaft

Krautter, Benjamin

Abstract

In computational literary studies, stylometrics are most commonly used for authorship attribution studies. This article argues that there is a potential use for stylometrics in literary studies beyond the mere detection of authorship. To show this, several current research approaches are analysed and portrayed. However, the utilization of stylometrics bear limitations, such as its relative nature - the comparisons are only valid within the analyzed corpus - and its susceptibility for ›cherry picking‹.
