Introduction

Computational stylistics or stylometry is a study on writing styles. Through linguistic analysis it yields observations on stylistic characteristics for authors, expressed in terms of quantifiable measures. These measures can be exploited for characterisation of writers, finding some similarities and differentiating features amongst their styles, for authorship attribution, and for recognition of documents based not on their topic, which is so common, but style. Stylistic analysis belongs with text mining, data mining, information retrieval, but also pattern recognition [4].
