4456RE: [Synoptic-L] Length of Luke (and Acts)
- Aug 4, 2012To: Synoptic
In Response To: David Mealand
In view of David's recent disclaimer, I am perfectly willing to assume sole
ownership of the following principle:
"Stylometric indicators tend to be sensitive for style, but less so for
authorship, a matter for which they were not designed."
To which, as sole owner, I would add the following (adapted from the same
"Use of stylometric methods to investigate authorship questions is in
principle a misapplication, and the results should always be interpreted
with appropriate reticence."
