2016 Cognitive Science  
Our study extends current applications of compositional distributional semantic methods to linguistically and cognitively interesting problems, and it offers a new, quantitatively precise approach to the  ...  Our results show that the extent to which an attributive adjective alters the distributional representation of the noun is the most significant factor in modeling the distinction between acceptable and  ...  We take the extensive success of distributional semantic methods at modeling a variety of meaning-related phenomena as evidence that such methods, while relying on purely distributional patterns, are indeed  ...

Visualizing distances in a set of near-synonyms [chapter]

Guillaume Desagulier
2014 Human Cognitive Processing  
It is also an accurate means to (a) unveil fine semantic differences in a set of near-synonymous constructions, (b) determine entrenchment continua, and (c) represent a significant part of the complex  ...  I aim to uncover revealing aspects of the conceptual structure of four English moderators (rather, quite, fairly, and pretty) and shed new light on previous studies on degree modifiers.  ...  Method I combine two broad types of statistics: analytical statistics and multifactorial methods. Analytical statistics uses measures such as frequencies in the domain of hypothesis testing.  ...
