Russian psycholinguistics and word association dictionaries
2017, Vol. XXII-1, pp. 75-88
The article presents dictionaries of words associations (also called ‘lexical’ or ‘verbal’ associations). Firstly used in psychological experiments, these dictionaries were mainly developed in Russia from the 1980s where a new linguistic discipline appeared, the ‘associative linguistics’. We present the results obtained for French language due to the creation of two dictionaries and their possible exploitations, in particular in semantics.
