ON VIA CONTEXT PRIMING David J. Hutches Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Mail Code 0114 University of California, San Diego La Jolla, CA 92093-0114 dhutches@ucsd.edu Abstract In this paper we discuss the results of experiments which use a context, essentially an ordered set of lexical items, as the seed from which to build a network representing statistically important rela- tionships among lexical items in some corpus. A metric is then applied to the nodes in the network in order to discover those pairs of items related by high indices of similarity. The goal of this research is to instantiate a class of items corresponding to each item in the priming context. We believe that this instantiation process is ultimately a special case of abstraction over the entire network; in ...
