Language and gender author cohort analysis of e-mail for computer forensics
de Vel, Olivier Y., Corney, Malcolm W., Anderson, Alison M., & Mohay, George M. (2002) Language and gender author cohort analysis of e-mail for computer forensics. In Digital Forensics Research Workshop, 6-8 August, Syracuse, NY, USA.
We describe an investigation of authorship gender and language background cohort attribution mining from e-mail text documents. We used an extended set of predominantly topic content-free e-mail document features such as style markers, structural characteristics and gender-preferential language features together with a Support Vector Machine learning algorithm. Experiments using a corpus of e-mail documents generated by a large number of authors of both genders gave promising results for both author gender and language background cohort categorisation.
