The n-tuple recognition method is briefly reviewed, summarizing the main theoretical results. Large-scale experiments carried out on Stat-Log project datasets confirm this method as a viable competitor to more popular methods due to its speed, simplicity, and accuracy on the majority of a wide variety of classification problems. A further investigation into the failure of the method on certain datasets finds the problem to be largely due to a mismatch between the scales which describe generalization and data sparseness.
