pydistinto - a Python implementation of different measures of distinctiveness for contrastive text analysis


To facilitate the use of relevant measures that can be used for contrastive text analysis, we are developing a tool written in Python called pydistinto as part of the Zeta and Company project. The goal of our project is to achieve a deeper understanding of the different measures of distinctiveness and to propose improvements for their implementation and use. For this purpose, we created a conceptual framework of different measures of distinctiveness. Based on the framework and Codes from pyzeta, pydistinto has been developed.
