CONTENTS

METHODS

createTopHash ($wn) Creates and loads the topmost nodes hash from WordNet.

updateWordFrequency ($word, $offsetFreq, $wn [, $opt_resnik]) Updates the counts of a given word in a given offset-frequency hash. It finds the offsets of all concepts corresponding to the given word in WordNet, and increments the frequency counts of these in the hash.

returns: nothing.
