Description:


Death Death Death lists the relationships between over 10,000 words and death. The relationships are defined by associations.

The beginning reads like this:

Life - Death
Funeral - Death
Coffin - Death

Later, it takes several associations to get to death. The entry for Jiggle, for example, reads:

Jiggle - Jello - Red - Blood - Death

Death Death Death is 405 pages, and contains an index so you can find any word.

These associative chains are derived from a word association study that spanned twenty-five years. Using this data, I developed an algorithm to determine the most direct route between any word and death. The result is this book. A complete description can be found here.
