The Stylist is a Waterloo Pascal program that analyzes the style of English prose. A "style checker", The Stylist pertains to Computational Stylistics and Computer Assisted Composition Instruction (CACI). The Stylist creates an affective model of the text based upon the following characteristic of its component words: etymology, tangibility, difficulty, emotional connotation, and vigor. The Stylist then compares this model to the standards of fiction or nonfiction texts and reports results and recommendations to the user. The Stylist also creates a concordance of the user's input using a new data structure called a Concordance Search Tree (CST). A CST is a binary search tree with a linked list threaded through it recording the order of the used of each word. An inorder traversal of the tree, with a traversal of the linked list during each visit, creates a concordance. This thesis also reviews related literature and programs.
