  • Applications of methods, models, or findings from quantitative linguistics to problems of natural language processing, text classification, stylistics, authorship attribution, language teaching, scientometrics, bibliometrics, text mining, language complexity and complex network analysis.
  • Methods of linguistic measurement, model construction, sampling and test theory.
  • Epistemological issues relevant to quantitative linguistics such as explanation of language and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction, systems theory, philosophy of science.
