> Hi Michael, when you compared the "Lawrence and Lawson samples" , I believe your example comparison is incorrect. For example, neither text contains the word "also", but after your comparison, "also" has a value other than zero, which can't possibly be true. Screenshots attached. This leads me to believe you didn't in fact compare the lawrence sample with the lawson sample. > Apologies if I've misunderstood something.
Hi Justin, There are 2 instances of "also" in Lawrence, 0 in Lawson. However, when that counts for each profile are normalised (as per the spec), Lawrence goes to 1.52905 . Lawson, of course remains 0. The difference therefore is 1.52905, which when squared is 2.338 (to 3 decimal places), which is what is seen as the value for square difference of _normalised_ values for "also". No?
