Complexity of Word Collocation Networks: A Preliminary Structural Analysis

  title={Complexity of Word Collocation Networks: A Preliminary Structural Analysis},

In this paper, we explore complex network properties of word collocation networks (Ferret, 2002) from four different genres. Each document of a particular genre was converted into a network of words with word collocations as edges.
