comment Arithmetic vs Geometric Mean
@Martín-Blas Pérez Pinilla The "Sentence Score" measures the usefulness of a sentence with respect to a learner. Learners want to hear as many common words as possible.

comment Arithmetic vs Geometric Mean
@Hagen von Eitzen My application is to generate a score for the sentence. What I'm interested in is what factors would cause me to get a higher Sentence Score for a sentence when using the AM over the GM and vice versa. Form this I can decide myself as to which Mean to use.

comment Estimating word frequency for a set of texts
@Willemien Mentioned twice in the same novel. I have created the English corpus myself by taking films and books and some other smaller free corpora.

comment Estimating word frequency for a set of texts
I guess my concern would be if the name "Bubba" were to appear in a certain film (say Forest Gump) which is included in my corpus. This will give an exaggerated frequency for Bubba for just one of the files. Can I not take advantage of this fact when estimating how accurate my frequency estimation for Bubba is?
