About Stylene

The goal of the Stylene project is to implement a robust, modular system for stylometry and readability research using existing techniques for automatic text analysis and machine learning. In order to allow researchers in Humanities and Social Sciences to experiment with the system, a user friendly web service will be developed. By doing so, the project makes available recent progress in the domain of the computational modeling of style and readability. Furthermore, an interface will be built for the "interested layman" which allows him to analyse his own style and to compare it to the style of other authors. The project will implement the standards made available through the CLARIN project.
