Skillex: a graph-based lexical score for measuring the semantic efficiency of used verbs by human subjects describing actions

Abstract : Dictionaries are sociocultural objects that can be used as underlying structures of cognitive science models. We first show that the lexical networks constructed from dictionaries, despite a surface disagreement at links level, share a common topological structure. We assume that this deep structure reflects the semantic organisation of the lexicon shared by the members of a linguistic community. We propose a model based on the exploration of this specific struc- ture to analyse and compare the semantic efficiency of [Children/Adults] productions in action labelling tasks. We define a generic score of semantic efficiency, S KILLEX. Assigned to partic- ipants of the A PPROX protocol, this score enables us to accurately classify them into Children and Adults categories.
