Corpus Derived, First, Second and Third-Order Word Affinities.
A number of corpus-based extraction techniques have been successfully implemented which derive lists
of similar words, based on some definition of the context in which they are found, from a corpus. We present
here the results of affining such a list in order to extract semantic axes expressing nuances of a
word's meaning. These semantic axes represent corpus-based meaning distinctions that are based
on the word's usage in the corpus.
