Complex Network Analysis of Distributional Semantic Models

  title={Complex Network Analysis of Distributional Semantic Models},
  author={Akira Utsumi},
A number of studies on network analysis have found the smallworld and scale-free properties in the network of free word association, which reflects human semantic knowledge. Nevertheless, there have been very few attempts to apply network analysis to distributional semantic models (DSMs), despite the fact that DSMs have been extensively studied as a model of human semantic knowledge. In this paper, therefore, we analyze the small-world and scale-free properties of DSM networks. We demonstrate… CONTINUE READING
