enumerate.meaningcombinations {cultevo} | R Documentation |
Enumerates all possible combinations of meanings for a meaning space of the given dimensionality.
enumerate.meaningcombinations(dimensionality, uniquelabels = TRUE,
offset = 0)
dimensionality |
either a) a vector of integers specifying the number of different possible values for every meaning dimension, or b) a list or other (potentially ragged) 2-dimensional data structure listing the possible meaning values for every dimension |
uniquelabels |
logical, determines whether the same integers can be
reused across meaning dimensions or not. When |
offset |
a constant that is added to all meaning specifiers. Ignored
when |
The resulting matrix can be passed straight on to
hammingdists
and other meaning distance functions created by
wrap.meaningdistfunction
.
A matrix that has as many columns as there are dimensions, with every row specifying one of the possible meaning combinations. The entries of the first dimension cycle slowest (see examples).
