~,arper 13 At which point on the curve shall we draw a line, saying that an SC above this value indicates similarity, a~d that an SC below this value indicates dissimilarity or weak similarity (all this of course: in terms of rcliability)? For purposes of discussion, we propose to set the t]~reshold at .00100--a rigorously high figure. After eliminating pairs whose NA value is less than 4, we find 38 p,~irs whose SC lies in the range .00100 to .01~337 (Table 5). (Z],e first two zeroes are dropped). The reader may draw his own conclusions about the degree of similarity between the nouns in any given pairing. ing. For purposes of discussion, we will refer to the pairings in terms of our preliminary groupings (Table I). The following intraand inter-Group pairings are observed in Tab le 5 : No...
