Style Relationships — Bi-Variate Stylostatistics
The comparison of authors with regard to style may be one in terms of certain statistics calculated for each author, or in terms of statistics calculated jointly for both. We may, for instance, as in Section 6.10, compare v m calculated for each author. This will tell us something about the uniformity/diversity idiosyncrasies of the writers in the repeated use of words. But we must not forget that v m refers for each author to possibly different vocabulary items, whereas we may wish to compare two authors with regard to their preference (frequency of use) for the same vocabulary items.
