We consider mining unusual patterns from text T. Unlike existing methods which assume probabilistic models and use simple estimation methods, we employ a set B of background text in addition to T and compositions w=xy of x and y as patterns. A string w is peculiar if there exist x and y such that w=xy, each of x and y is more frequent in B than in T, and conversely w=xy is more frequent in T. The frequency of xy in T is very small since x and y are infrequent in T, but xy is relatively abundant in T compared to xy in B. Despite these complex conditions for peculiar compositions, we develop a fast algorithm to find peculiar compositions using the suffix tree. Experiments using DNA sequences show scalability of our algorithm due to our pruning techniques and the superiority of the concept of the peculiar composition.
