4.7.1 Academic and Legal Definition Frequency Count Comparison
After running the previously discussed data (see Appendix F) through a paired
samples t-test, there was no statistically significant difference between the legal definitions
(M= .21, SD= .39) and the academic definitions (M= .22, SD= .46) with a p-value of.765.
Therefore, the null hypothesis could not be rejected. The results of the comparison of word
frequencies between the academic and legal definitions were inconclusive as shown in
