Similarity as Distance: A Structural Principle for Semantic Memory
Hutchinson, J. Wesley; Lockhead, G. R.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, 3, 6, 660-78, Nov 77
A review of some recent experiments suggested that general similarity between words might successfully function as a structural principle for semantic memory. A spatial model based on that assumption is proposed. The relation of this model to network and set-theoretic models of semantic memory is discussed, as is the relation of this model for semantic memory to a model for form discrimination. (Editor/RK)
