Authorship profiling without using topical information

Jussi Karlgren, Lewis Esposito, Chantal Gratton, and Pentti Kanerva

This paper describes an experiment made for the PAN 2018 shared task on author profiling. The task is to distinguish female from male authors of microblog posts published on Twitter using no extraneous information except what is in the posts; this experiment focusses on using non-topical information from the posts, rather than gender differences in referential content.
