Abstract

The aim of this study was to propose a new method to model writing characteristics of users with consistency. This study explored the possibility of modeling the characteristics by analyzing linguistic features of drafts and written comments of the same users in a peer review system. The drafts and comments were collected from 41 undergraduate students who were taking an introductory physics course in the U.S. Natural language processing was used for analyzing drafts and written comments produced by the participants. The results of this study showed that users who wrote drafts by using abstract nouns, different words across sentences, and structurally complex sentences, tended to write comments with abstract nouns, diverse words, and structurally complex sentences. These results implied that users' stable writing characteristics could be modeled based on linguistic features such as ambiguity, lexical diversity, and syntactic complexity.
