DependencyVectors is a Semantic Space model construction program that works on the basis of Dependency Grammar relations. It supports both the MINIPAR and the Clark and Curran dependency parsers. It is written in Java and requires a Java 1.5 runtime environment. (If you need a 1.4 version, write me an email.)
