The following bar charts are based on the raw distributional figures reproduced in the tables given in appendix E. As for the graphic representation chosen, semantic classes are arranged in the horizontal axis of the diagrams according to their distance to class A, or the nominal prototype, in semantic similarity space. Class A constitutes the leftmost position in the axis. The greater the distance of a given lexical class from class A in semantic similarity space, the further to the right it will be located. In some language-specific space diagrams, however, mixed classes are found which are equidistant from class A. Since the specific structure of the bar charts used for graphic representation of the data is such that a single position in the axis cannot be occupied by more than one class, separate diagrams are established in such cases. The Lakota data are not dealt with in what follows because, obviously, comparing the internal composition of language-specific mixed classes presupposes the existence of at least two mixed classes. In Lakota, only a single mixed class could be identified.
