Descriptivity in Slovak Lyrics

Ioan-Iovitz Popescu / Radek Čech / Gabriel Altmann

Abstract

The aim of the article is to introduce the measurement of “activity” and “descriptivity” of a text based on the proportions of adjectives and verbs. Functions based on interaction of forces, tests for significance of a property and for comparison of two texts are introduced. The methods are applied to the poetry of the Slovak poetess Eva Bachletová.

Keywords: activity; descriptivity; text analysis; poetry; lyrics
