I study linguistics, and I'm conducting a research which compares the ratio between two categories of words in 2 different text corpuses.
Let's say I have corpuses A and B. I created 2 categories of words, Let's call them C and D. I want to calculate the ratio between the count of words in category C and the count of words in category D, and see if the ratio in corpus A is significantly larger than the ratio in corpus B.
What statistical test can I use to test this hypothesis?
It's worth mentioning that the count of words in category C should theoretically depend on the count of words in category D and vice versa.
Thanks in advance
