I'm processing a large corpus for a given language. I've noticed that for certain sections of the corpus, I can go many tens of thousands of words without the word "me" being mentioned. These are obviously the parts of the corpus with more technical data.
I'm primarily interested in words and phrases used in everyday casual speech and am wondering what words i can search for in order to find those parts of the corpus which are more suitable to my particular application.
Here are some of my suggestions: me, you, he, she, them, our, ours, their, theirs, my, your, mine, yours you're, i, "i am", "you are". So I would expect these words to have a higher frequency of occurrence in those parts of the corpus of most relevance. What other words and phrases would you suggest? Is there a danger that I bias my results in a manner I haven't anticipated?
