Short abstract

My research project focuses on using techniques from the domain of Natural Language Processing to answer questions about language and style on big corpora of literary texts. Currently, I am working on a project about the notion of idiolect. I try to answer the questions 1) How does the idiolect of an author evolve over their lifetime ? and 2) Can we distinguish idiosyncratic changes from general diachronic language evolution?
