Description

When she died in 1817, the English novelist Jane Austen had not yet finished the novel Sanditon, but she did leave notes on how she intended to conclude the book. The novel was completed by a ghost writer, who attempted to emulate Austen's style. In 1978, a researcher reported counts of some words found in chapters of books written by Austen and in chapters written by the emulator. These data are given in this data frame.
