  • simple maths [ statistics ]

    The simple maths formula is used to calculate the keyness score in Sketch Engine. This score is used to identify terms, keywords and also key n-grams and key collocations. It identifies items which appear more frequently in the focus corpus than in the reference corpus. It uses relative (per million) frequencies and, therefore,  makes it possible to contrast corpora of unequal sizes. see Simple maths.
