Hi Karin,

In my 2007 paper on this subject [*], I gave an overview of (what I believed to be) most of the prominent literature published on the topic up till then. (You might also find my discussion on pp 73-74 of that paper relevant to your question re "analysis of the reasons".)

I'm not up-to-date on anything published since that date, unfortunately.

best

Andrew.

Does anyone know of any study of the difference in (and an analysis of the reasons) part-of-speech tag distribution in different genres? A quick study I made yesterday showed e.g. that my working hypothesis that there are more proper nouns in news paper text than in fiction was correct, at least on the data I examined.
