Abstract

Previous studies showed that linguistic aspect of source code is a valuable source of information that can help to improve program comprehension. The proposed research work focuses on supporting quality improvement of source code by identifying, specifying, and studying common negative practices (i.e., linguistic antipatterns) with respect to linguistic information. We expect the definition of linguistic antipatterns to increase the awareness of the existence of such bad practices and to discourage their use. We also propose to study the relation between negative practices in linguistic information (i.e., linguistic antipatterns) and negative practices in structural information (i.e., design antipatterns) with respect to comprehension effort and fault/change proneness. We discuss the proposed methodology and some preliminary results.
