The Limits of Co-Occurrence: Tools and Theories in Language Research.
Perfetti, Charles A.
Discourse Processes, v25 n2-3 p363-77 1998
Comments on several quantitative approaches to semantic knowledge representations (the focus of this special issue). Points out some of the ways in which Latent Semantic Analysis and Hyperspace Analog to Language fall short of being plausible theories about psychological reality. Examines in-principle failures and wrong-kind failures that arise in systems. Points out limitations of systems based exclusively on co-occurrence. (SR)
