We report on the first structured dis- tributional semantic model for Croatian, DM.HR. It is constructed after the model of the English Distributional Memory (Ba- roni and Lenci, 2010), from a dependency- parsed Croatian web corpus, and covers about 2M lemmas. We give details on the linguistic processing and the design prin- ciples. An evaluation shows state-of-the- art performance on a semantic similarity task with particularly good performance on nouns.
