Okay, a fun but probably pointless toy:

The Gender Genie purports to be able to determine whether the author of a text is male or female.

( For details and an explanation, check Jed Hartman's Blog here )

Playing with this, I discovered something interesting: the algorithm identified both a chunk of Edward II (A Gaveston speech) and a chunk of Kit's POV from The Stratford Man as female, and a chunk of Othello (Iago and Roderigo) and a chunk of Will's POV from SM as male.

Heh. Well, at least that tells me I've managed to give them somewhat different voices, I guess.

A sonnet, however, was identified as female.
