Characteristics of Web-based textual communications

Research output: Types of ThesisDoctoral ThesisExternal


In this thesis, we analyze different aspects of Web-based textual communications and argue that all such communications share some common properties. In order to provide practical evidence for the validity of this argument, we focus on two common properties by examining these properties on various types of Web-based textual communications data. These properties are: All Web-based communications contain features attributable to their author and reciever; and all Web-based communications exhibit similar heavy tailed distributional properties.
