Computes distance metrics for two single words

1 |

`x` |
A single word, given as a character of |

`y` |
A single word, given as a character of |

`method` |
Specifies whether to compute |

`tvectors` |
the semantic space in which the computation is to be done (a numeric matrix where every row is a word vector) |

`breakdown` |
if |

Computes Minkowski metrics, i.e. geometric distances between the vectors for two given words. Possible options are `euclidean`

for the Euclidean Distance, * d(x,y) = √{∑{(x-y)^2}}*, and `cityblock`

for the City Block metric, * d(x,y) = ∑{|x-y|}*

The distance value as a numeric
