We present the S-Space Package, an open source framework for developing and eval- uating word space algorithms. The pack- age implements well-known word space algorithms, such as LSA, and provides a comprehensive set of matrix utilities and data structures for extending new or ex- isting models. The package also includes word space benchmarks for evaluation. Both algorithms and libraries are designed for high concurrency and scalability. We demonstrate the efficiency of the reference implementations and also provide their re- sults on six benchmarks.
