  • Content : The team compared the frequent word usage pattern of each chapter of the Book of Mormon to the word usage patterns of seven authors: historically plausible authors (Oliver Cowdery, Sidney Rigdon, Solomon Spalding, Parley Pratt), positive control authors (Isaiah/Malachi), and negative control authors (Barlow and Longfellow). The team also used two methods of authorship attribution: a conventional method (Delta) and a new method (Nearest Shrunken Centroids, NSC).
