For the same corpus, two specificity calculus on two different partitions with different word properties produce by default different values for T, that are also different from the T given by the Description command:
  • a- description : T = 19962
  • b- partition BLAIR/BROWN/CAMERON, propriété pos : T = 19957
  • c- partition BLAIR/BROWN/CAMERON, propriété lemma : T = 18871
  • d- partition BLAIR/BROWN/CAMERON, propriété word : T = 18374
  • e- partition LABOUR/CONSERVATIVE, propriété lemma : T = 18871

This comes from the default minimum frequency parameter used that has different impact for each word property.

There is an ergonomy question concerning terminology in the interface: does the T symbol should try to be homogeneous between different calculus on the same corpus?
Or must terminology reflect the difference?

Does the default parameters mecanism should force the user to have to explicitly change the meaning of some symbols through changing new parameters values?

This question is related to nearly all calculus done by TXM.
