Quick update today. I came across a cool tool recently. In an effort to graduate, I’ve been trying to write more. Thanks to research, I’ve also been interested in what text analysis tools can determine based on your input. That’s how I came across this. I write Like is a cool website that lets you upload a piece of writing and then performs some analysis to determine what famous author you write like. I apparently write like Agatha Christie. I would rather write like Douglas Adams, but this is cool too.
Cohmetrix is a little more academic. In their words “Coh-Metrix calculates the coherence of texts on a wide range of measures. It replaces common readability formulas by applying the latest in computational linguistics and linking this to the latest research in psycholinguistics.” In other words, it takes your writing and calculates cool stats like grade level.
Who do you write like? Leave it at the comments.
