Abstract

In this paper, we propose to investigate style through modeling burstiness in the occurrence patterns of terms in different collections. We set out a fine grained model that looks at gaps between the successive occurrence of the term using a mixture of exponential distributions. A Bayesian framework allows flexibility in fitting the model. The parameter estimates are then studied to understand the distributional properties of a term in various collections. We investigate the behaviour of a range of terms and conclude that the model brings out useful features that may be deployed in the analysis of style.
