We define the peculiarity of text as a metric of information credibility. Higher peculiarity means lower credibility. We extract
the theme word and the characteristic words from text and check whether there is a subject-description relation between them.
The peculiarity is defined using the ratio of the subject-description relation between a theme word and characteristic words.
We evaluate the extent to which peculiarity can be used to judge by classifying text from Wikipedia and Uncyclopedia in terms
of the peculiarity.
