This paper describes an approach for investi- gating the representation of events and their distribution in a corpus. We collect and analyze statistics about subject-verb-object triplets and their content, which helps us com- pare corpora belonging to the same domain but to different genre/text type. We argue that event structure is strongly related to the genre of the corpus, and propose statistical proper- ties that are able to capture these genre differ- ences. The results obtained can be used for the improvement of Information Extraction.
