Definition of Co-Occurrence
What does Co-Occurrence mean?
- an event or situation that happens at the same time as or in connection with another
- synonyms of co-occurrence: accompaniment / attendant / concomitant
- more generic terms: happening / natural event / occurrence / occurrent = an event that happens
- more specific words:
- the temporal property of two things happening at the same time
- synonyms of co-occurrence: coincidence / concurrence / conjunction
- more generic words: simultaneity / simultaneousness = happening or existing or done at the same time
- more specific words:
- [uncountable] The fact of a thing occurring simultaneously with something else; correlation.
- [countable] An instance of a thing occurring simultaneously with something else; co-incidence.
Co-occurrence or cooccurrence can either mean concurrence / coincidence or, in a more specific sense, the above-chance frequent occurrence of two terms from a text corpus alongside each other in a certain order. Co-occurrence in this linguistic sense can be interpreted as an indicator of semantic proximity or an idiomatic expression. In contrast to collocation, co-occurrence assumes interdependency of the two terms. A co-occurrence restriction is identified when linguistic elements never occur together. Analysis of these restrictions can lead to discoveries about the structure and development of a language.
