Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper proposes a method to quantify the typicality of lexical bundles in sections of academic articles, specifically in the field of Natural Language Processing papers. Typicality is defined as the product of individual KL-divergence scores and the probability of a bundle to appear in a type of section. An evaluation of our typicality measure against two other baselines shows slight improvements according to the Silhouette coefficient.
