Abstract

In this paper we propose a new approach for measuring semantic relatedness between words. The semantic relatedness between words are not measured directly, but are computed via set of words highly related to them, which we call the set of determiner words. Our approach for evaluating relatedness belongs to web page counting based measurement methods. We take into account some information, which contains hierarchical and other type of relations between the words. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed method.
