The LX-ESSLLI 2008 data set was created from the ESSLLI 2008 Distributional Semantic Workshop shared-task set, made of 44 concrete nouns grouped in 6 semantic categories (4 animate and 2 inanimate). The grouping is done in an hierarchical way following the top 10 properties from the McRae (2005) norms: bird-animal-natural; ground animal-animal-natural; fruit tree-vegetable-natural; green-vegetable-natural; tool-artifact-artifact; vehicle-artifact-artifact.
We kept the organization into the same categories, resulting in a list with the same size as the original data set.
