Example of a Term-Context Co-occurrence Matrix (wordspace)


This matrix is a typical example of a term-context DSM co-occurrence matrix, derived from the English Wikipedia. It is available as a plain matrix in sparse representation, and as DSM object including marginal frequency data.





DSM_TermContextMatrix is a sparse numeric matrix of class dgCMatrix with 7 rows and 7 columns.

Rows represent the target nouns cat, dog, animal, time, reason, cause, effect.

Columns specify the occurrence frequencies of these nouns in Wikipedia articles on Felidae, Pet, Feral, Boat, Philosohpy, Kant and Back Pain.

DSM_TermContext is an object of class dsm based on the same co-occurrence matrix, but with additional information on marginal frequencies of the target terms and feature contexts.
