Furbank, P. N. and Owens, W. R.
The Scriblerian, 23 pp. 242–244.
A discussion of the claims made for stylometry, i.e. the application of statistical method to authorship attribution. It argues that stylometry is so contested as a method that it cannot be classed as a 'science' but only an aspiration. For this reason its findings cannot be cited as 'evidence' by literary scholars.
