Abstract:

"Don Foster reveals a startling fact; since no two people use language in precisely the same way, our identities are encoded in our own language, a kind of literary DNA. Combining traditional scholarship with modern technology, Foster has discovered how to unlock that code and, in the process, has invented an entire field of investigation, literary forensics, by which it becomes possible to catch anonymous authors with their own words."--Jacket.
