Tricky.
Proof read with your Deja Vu set to 11?

The concordance tool sounds good to detect repetitive writing, which really annoys people if it slips past the proof reading.

  • Unzip the epub file.
  • If the folder contains .xhtml files change their file extensions to .html.
  • Open AntConc, select Open file(s) as 'Quick Corpus', select .html as the file type and then select the extracted .html files.
  • Click the N-Gram tab, select the desired number of words and click Start.
I've attached a sample screenshot of the output.
Obviously, copy and paste all the chapters/files to one mega file* as the repeat in a novel (likely unwanted if you are the author or official editor) is probably in a separate file.

Indeed any search tool is useless unless you know the exact repeating text.


[* Unless it has a project / session mode that remembers previous files?]

It would be best to convert the ePub to text and then run it through AntConc.

Tried it following your instructions - while setting the frequency to 2 - and it found an erroneus duplication of an unknown word group in no time. I knew it was somewhere in the text, but had no idea what it was and where.

And double-clicking a hit gives you short context. And double-clicking the context brings up the whole text, with repetition highlighted. Perfect.

Doitsu, thank you so much!
