Author categorization considers the problem of identifying the author of an anonymous article. The goal of this work is to identify authors of articles by using different character n-gram based representations of documents. The use of character n-gram models is a relatively simple idea, but it turns out to be quite effective in many applications. The most important point in n-gram based methods is how to represent the documents. In this study, several widely used unsupervised and supervised n-gram weighting methods are investigated on a Turkish data corpus in combination with different classification algorithms. Apart from this, the character n-gram based features are compared with some stylistic markers and the evaluation results are shared in detail.
