Beschreibung

We created a new collection of English concreteness/abstractness norms for 3 million English words and Multiword expression. We relied on the google pretrained vectors from word2vec which are available here : GoogleNews-vectors-negative300

The neural network implementation used in our experiements is based on this implementation

 Some (random) example words:

  • razor_blade 9.651
  • Oreo_cookies 9.392
  • toilet_paper 9.002
  • chocolate 9.171
  • pizza 9.013
  • ideals 0.083
  • endlessly 0.075
  • irresponsibly 0.058
