Abstract

Analogical grids aim to capture the organization of the lexicon of a language. We conduct experiments on analogical grids extracted in four different languages with different morphological richness. We study the saturation of analogical grids against their size. We observe that the logarithm of the saturation of an analogical grid is linear in the logarithm of its size. More surprisingly, the coefficients of this log-log linear relation are extremely close across all four languages, even when the size or the genre of the corpus vary.
