How many hops you have to make to travel from one node to another, assuming
you actually have a path between them. In this case you're linking two term
definitions across across which imply term equivalence. My concern was that
if two definitions are far apart, the equivalence is weakened (Thanks to Len
for "semantic drift" and recalling a large chunk of my memory, I forgot that
one *completely*: <http://www.google.com/search?q=semantic+distance>).
