I have a customer with count data as follows:

Author1 Author1 Author2 CharA 1 0 0 CharB 3 4 5 CharC 2 2 2

Each row represent certain characteristics like the number of occurences of that characteristic in a sentence. Author1 above represents the same person on 2 different occasions. Author2 is a different author.

The customer's hypothesis is that there is no difference between Author1 on both occasions with regards the characteristics while there is a difference between Author2 and Author1 on both occasions.

Any idea what test would I use above?
