Abstract

We have recently introduced a computational framework that, given a partition of a text into two literary constituents, finds the best parameters for successfully distinguishing linguistic features to support that partition and evaluates the statistical significance thereof. We applied our algorithm to assess the literary uniqueness of the Priestly source in the books of Genesis and Exodus, focusing on the mathematical and statistical underpinning of our approach. Here we take a close philological look at the linguistic features found to characterize the two distinct categories of texts.
