This paper discusses results from an experimental study of concept
neighbourhoods in WordNet and Roget’s Thesaurus. The general aim of this research
is to determine ways in which neighbourhood lattices can be derived in
real time from a lexical database and displayed on the web. In order to be readable
the lattices must not be too large, not contain overlapping concepts or labels and
must be calculated within seconds. Lattices should, furthermore, not be too small
and they should contain sufficient complexity to be interesting for the viewer. For
these purposes the sizes of the lattices of different types of concept neighbourhoods
have been calculated. Using the size information should help with the task
of on-line generation of the lattices
