WordNet::Similarity::FrequencyCounter - Support functions for frequency counting programs used to estimate the information content of concepts.
Creates and loads the topmost nodes hash from WordNet.
returns: $topHash, a reference to a hash containing the topmost nodes of the noun and verb hierarchies in WordNet.
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.
This function propagates the frequencies up the is-a hierarchies in WordNet, and return a hash with the new frequency counts.
returns: $newFreq, hash containing updated counts.
