Tiberias Stylistic Classifier for the Hebrew Bible

Joshua Berman has announced the launch of a new stylistic classification tool for the Hebrew Bible/OT: Tiberias Stylistic Classifier for the Hebrew Bible. Tiberias permits comparison of different reference texts (classes) to identify stylistic differences and distinguishability. You can then input a text you want to classify in terms of stylistic proximity to the selected classes. Classification can be done based on specific inflected words, lexemes, morphology, and syntax, allowing for a very complex overview of stylistic differences between corpora. It would probably take some time to get the most out of this resource, but it looks like a promising database for stylistic comparisons.
