This paper presents a case study defining a precise evaluation scheme for text stylistics to be used to rank different documents in terms of persuasiveness and easyness of reading. The study concerns political program documents published on a public forum by candidates to rector of the University Ca’ Foscari – Venice. The documents have been analysed by our system and a rank list has been created on the basis of scores associated to eleven parameters. After voting has taken place, we graded the different analyses and discovered that the system had predicted the name of the actual winner in advance.

Abstract

This paper presents a case study defining a precise evaluation scheme for text stylistics to be used to rank different documents in terms of persuasiveness and easyness of reading. The study concerns political program documents published on a public forum by candidates to rector of the University Ca’ Foscari – Venice. The documents have been analysed by our system and a rank list has been created on the basis of scores associated to eleven parameters. After voting has taken place, we graded the different analyses and discovered that the system had predicted the name of the actual winner in advance. The result has been published on a local newspaper.
