Contextual Correlates of Meaning.
Charles, Walter G.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n4 p505-24 Dec 2000
The relation between similarity and dissimilarity of context was analyzed for synonymous nouns. New semantic similarity and dissimilarity rating tests with an empirically determined series of linguistic anchors and conventional, arbitrarily anchored semantic similarity ratings were compared. Contextual similarity was elicited by a sorting test based on substitution and yielding d-primes. (Author/VWL)
