This book presents an investigation of the potentialities of
employing computational linguistics and statistics in resolving
cases of disputed authorship and suspected plagiarism. Much has
been written about the ways of addressing doubtful texts with no
clear clues of real authorship. It is no use to reduplicate what
has already been achieved. Therefore, some major questions are
posed related to the viability of certain computational programs
(WordSmith Tools, Version 5.0), and statistical techniques
(Principal Components Analysis, and Cluster Analysis) involved in
the statistical package (SPSS version 14.0). Corpora of various
genres are tackled in English and Arabic so that some general
premises might be attained. The statistical behavior of one
particular feature is observed to pin down authorship and
plagiarism problems. This behavior is related to the way function
words behave across different textual corpora. The researcher
figures out the overlapping aspects that bring plagiarism detection
and authorship attribution together in one basket. Suspected cases
of plagiarism can be interpreted as special cases of disputed or
