Forms and degrees of repetition in texts : detection and analysis

Author: Gabriel Altmann; Reinhard Köhler
Publisher: Berlin ; Boston : De Gruyter Mouton, [2015]
Series: Quantitative linguistics, v. 68.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The volume presents objective methods to detect and analyse various forms of repetitions. Repetition of textual elements is more than a superficial phenomenon. It may even be considered as constitutive for units and relations in a text: on a primary level when no other way exists to establish a unit, and on a secondary, artistic level, where repetition is a consequence of the transfer of the equivalence principle.
