Abstract

Analysis of a corpus of tens of thousands of blogs -incorporating close to 300 million words - indicates significant differences in writing style and content between male and female bloggers as well as among authors of different ages. Such differences can be exploited to determine an unknown author's age and gender on the basis of a blog's vocabulary.
