For an experiment, I have a large dataset of tweets from 10 different subjects. The dataset contains around 300 tweets per subject. I'd like to find out whether the subjects differ from each other in the way they use specific linguistic features, e.g. the use of nouns.
Therefore, for every tweet I have counted the occurrences of nouns and I have computed proportions by dividing each counts by the number of words in a tweet. For example: a tweet contains 10 words and 3 nouns, then the proportion of noun in this tweet is .3. For every subject, I have computed the average of the proportion of nouns.
Now, I would like to find out whether the proportions differ significantly among subjects en at this point I got stuck.
I already searched the internet and SO for an answer, but were unable to find out what test I should use. The variance of the data is not homogeneous and the data also contains lots of zeroes. Is an ANOVA appropriate? If so, what post hoc test is recommended?
Any suggestions are much appreciated.
