The University of South Florida word association, rhyme, and word fragment norms
PairsP.net directed network with 10617 vertices and 72168 arcs (4 loops);
cue X is associated with target Y N times.
PairsFSG.net directed network with 10617 vertices and 72168 arcs (4 loops);
the strength of assocition (FSG) of cue X to target Y is Z.
cue.clu cue word partition: 1 - a cue word; 0 - not a cue word.
pofs.clu part of speech partition:
0 - undefined; 1 - N - noun; 2 - V - Verb;
3 - AJ - Adjective; 4 - AD - Adverb; 5 - P - Pronoun;
6 - PP - Preposition; 7 - I - Interjection; 8 - C - Conjunction.
Both derived networks are multi-relational: relation 1 - target normed;
relation 2 - target not normed.
USF Free Association Norms (ZIP, 764K)
More than 6,000 participants produced nearly three-quarters of
a million responses to 5,019 stimulus words. Participants were asked
to write the first word that came to mind that was meaningfully
related or strongly associated to the presented word on the blank
shown next to each item. For example, if given BOOK _________,
they might write READ on the blank next to it. This procedure is
called a discrete association task because each participant is
asked to produce only a single associate to each word.

Description of the data.
USF Free Association Norms into Pajek format
To transform the USF Free Association Norms into Pajek format we
glued the partial files from
back into a single file. Then using a simple program in Python we obtained
some files in Pajek Format. Since the coding of the parts of speech in
the original data is not consistent the partition pofs.clu still
needs some checking.
is a list of inconsistencies in labelings. We deleted the inconsistency
pairs (AJ - ADJ). The label A in pofs.clu was assigned the code 9.
