I can't help thinking that there must be textual analysis programmes which do this thing - have you put your request over to Language Log?

Not sure it's really their thing. When I first read the problem spec, I did start thinking along computational linguistics lines - Named Entity Recognition and using a Part-of-Speech tagger to find the proper nouns in the text, but then how would you get the characters from ...?

Sally's question is really more Pragmatics than anything else - metadata on the structure of the discourse, rather than anything actually said in it.
