Neighbor Coltheart


This column lists the orthographical neighbors to the types in the Type column in the same table. The definition of neighborhood applied here is the one by Coltheart et al. (1977):

Neighbors according to this definition are all types of the same length which differ exactly at one character position from the reference type. Neither insertion nor deletion are allowed.

Example: Hans has higher frequency Coltheart neighbors Haus and Hand, and less frequent Coltheart neighbors Hals, Hang, Gans, Haas (proper name) and more.

Please note that the number and the cumulative frequency of a type's neighbors are given in the Types table. They need not be calculated manually. The list of neighbors given here is just for reference and verification of the neighborhood measures given in the Types table.

For neighbors according to the definition of Levenshtein (edit distance), please see the Neighbors Levenshtein table.
