Wordnet graphs


These graphs show the concreteness of nouns in WordNet. Each file represents a separate lexname. Concrete nouns have links in yellow, while abstract nouns have links in red. These visualizations were made using Python and d3.js.

Some observations

  • Lexname can be a strong indicator for the abstractness/concreteness of the nouns.
  • Branches usually become more concrete towards the leaf nodes.
  • There are often 'concrete branches' and 'abstract branches'.

Comments on the interpretation of these graphs are very welcome!
