MI Score

The Mutual Information score expresses the extent to which words co-occur compared the number of times they appear separately. MI Score is affected strongly by the frequency, low-frequency words tend to reach a high MI score which may be misleading. This is why Sketch Engine allows setting a limit and words with a frequency below this limit will not be included in the calculation.

In most cases T-score is more useful than MI score.
