Comprehending Dirty-Word Descriptions

Timothy B. Jay
1981 Language and Speech  
The study of diity-word descriptions extends our knowledge of semantic, comprehension, and contextual language processes.  ...  Subjects were asked to judge how much they would like a fictitious person described with dirty and non-dirty adjective pairs.  ...  Perhaps asking the subject to imagine a specific speaker in the second experiment contributed to the consistent ratings. CONCLUSION What have dirty words showed us about understanding language?  ...

Search terms and a validated brief search filter to retrieve publications on health-related values in Medline: a word frequency analysis study

M. Petrova, P. Sutcliffe, K. W. M. Fulford, J. Dale
2012 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
This study used word frequency analysis to generate a broad pool of search terms and a brief filter to facilitate relevant searches in bibliographic databases.  ...  Of these, 19 text words and seven MeSH terms were compiled into a 'brief values filter'. In the derivation dataset, it had a sensitivity of 76.8% and precision of 86.8%.  ...  Also called 'natural language terms'. Frequencydin the context of this paper, represents the number of times a text word appears in the analyzed dataset and is used as proxy for sensitivity.  ...
