Re: VMs: wordlength persistence
The wordlength connection can easily be explained by several factors:
1) Text in two parts of "languages" with a different average wordlength
2) Text with citations in a "longer" language.
3) Text containing sequences of longer words, as in summing up names.
4) Text containing names consisting of two longer words.
For a trivial example of the last case see:
"aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa Wilfrid Voynich aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa
the AWL following a 5 letter word is 5.2
the AWL following a 7 letter word is 6.0
Now imagine text with AWL 5 containing groups of words with AWL 6 and the
same will hold although to much lesser extend.
This is not say there is no such effect as a wordlength connection, but that
can only unsurface when at least the four named effects are excluded.
