Assessed Relevance and Stylistic Variation

Karlgren, Jussi (1996) Assessed Relevance and Stylistic Variation. In: 19th Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, Zuerich, Switzerland.



Texts exhibit considerable stylistic variation. This paper reports an experiment where a large corpus of documents is analyzed using various simple stylistic metrics. A subset of the corpus has been previously assessed to be relevant for answering given information retrieval queries. The experiment shows that this subset differs significantly from the rest of the corpus in terms of the stylistic metrics studied.
