  • They computed a test statistic t(A,B,x) for each sequence x as the difference of log-likelihood ratio dissimilarity measures, D ( A , x ) = -2logλ( A , x ), for two data sets, a control set A and an outgroup B , such that t(A,B,x) = D(A,x) - D(B,x) . A negative value for t indicates that the sequence more closely resembles words from A ; conversely, a positive value indicates a likely contaminant related to B .
