We employ standard natural language processing techniques for evaluating the relative effectiveness of alternative methods. In such methods, a statistical algorithm is trained (or attuned to the data) using a corpus, often quite large. A smaller test set of texts are reserved or some other source of data (in our case, tests of synonym knowledge originally designed for humans) is provided, and a standard of performance is set. The effectiveness of alternative methods can then be assessed by examining precision (the percent of items correctly identified) and recall (the percent of the total number of correct items that were actually identified by the method).

This paper describes a pilot study that integrates the envelope of variation into multidimensional analysis. 282). Using twelve texts from the MICASE corpus (96,000 words), the two variables were corrected based on definitions in the original literature and then restated as testable hypotheses with envelopes of variation. 511 when using corrected algorithms with an envelope of variation. The first correlation was statistically significant, while the second and third were not. However, all three were higher than Biber’s original correlation, and would be significant if they were replicated with a corpus as big as Biber’s.
