vwr: Useful functions for visual word recognition research

Functions and data for use in visual word recognition research: Computation of neighbors (Hamming and Levenshtein distances), average distances to neighbors (e.g., OLD20), and Coltheart's N. Also includes the LD1NN algorithm to detect bias in the composition of a lexical decision task. Most of the functions support parallel execution. Supplies wordlists for several languages. Uses the string distance functions from the stringdist package by Mark van der Loo.
