Abstract
In this paper, we introduce a method of data-analysis for
word association norms. The defining characteristic of
this method is that is based upon the inference of a prob-
abilistic generative model of word-associations. The in-
ferred model can in principle provide a clear and in-
tuitive representation of the semantic knowledge inher-
ent in word association data, facilitate an understand-
ing of the process by which word associations are gen-
erated, extrapolate beyond the observed data to make
