What is the perceived relation between words? This is still a complex issue for semantic specialists.

This experiment uses a video-game in order to create a semantic map where volunteers define the distances between words. Semantic analysis is a major challenge for science and innovation as it's a very complex task requiring advanced models and experts validations.

A common technique is to determine which words are very similar or have a related meaning. Related words can be considered as neighbors in a graphic map.

We ask people to select which words lead from one fixed starting word to the goal word creating a visual map of distance between words.

What we will create is a citizen science application based on a gaming approach, which will trace the distance of thousands of words.

Results of this research will be important for the scientific as well as the business world with lots of applications being based on semantic analysis. New generation of web sites will be constructed over the semantic keys.
