Göttingen Dialog in Digital Humanities - Mining for characterising patterns in literature using correspondence analysis: an experiment on French novels

, 5:00 pm to

Speaker: Francesca Frontini, Université Pierre et Marie Curie/ France

The talk presents and describes a bottom up methodology for the detection of stylistic traits in the syntax of literary texts. The extraction of syntactic patterns is performed blindly by a sequential pattern mining algorithm, while the identification of significant and interesting features is performed later by using correspondence analysis and filtering for the most contributive patterns.
