In this project, we created two corpora of seven corporate governance reports each -- one containing reports from companies publicly traded in Hong Kong and one from companies publicly traded in the United States -- and compared them from a linguistic standpoint. Using three computer programs, including one written by us for this project, we analyzed both corpora quantitatively and qualitatively and used those data to make recommendations as to how companies from both locations can improve their corporate governance reports.
