svs: Tools for Semantic Vector Spaces

Various tools for semantic vector spaces, such as correspondence analysis (simple, multiple and discriminant), latent semantic analysis, probabilistic latent semantic analysis, non-negative matrix factorization, latent class analysis and EM clustering. Furthermore, there are specialized distance measures, plotting functions and some helper functions.
