The datasets on this page were obtained by asking human subjects to assign a similarity or relatedness judgment to a number of German word pairs. The datasets have been used to test the performance of semantic similarity/relatedness measures.
All subjects in our experiments were native speakers of German. A judgment of 0 means “fully unsimilar/unrelated”, while a score of 4 means “fully similar/related”.
In the comma-separated dataset files, each word pair is on a single line followed by the mean judgment score and the standard deviation.
