PAN14 Author Identification: Verification


We provide you with a training corpus that comprises a set of author verification problems in several languages/genres. Each problem consists of some (up to five) known documents by a single person and exactly one questioned document. All documents within a single problem instance will be in the same language and best efforts are applied to assure that within-problem documents are matched for genre, register, theme, and date of writing. The document lengths vary from a few hundred to a few thousand words.
