What’s in a full stop?
Institute of Fundamental Sciences, Massey University, Palmerston North
CohMetrix is a programme that allows you to enter a text, containing for example a snippet out of a book, and in return you get a breakdown of how “easy” or “cohesive” the language used is. The text needs to be entered with punctuation complete, however, with song texts, is the way we punctuate necessarily as consistent as with other texts? And do potential differences in where we place a full stop have a significant impact on the output we get from CohMetrix?
This lightning talk will give some insights on these questions.
