Hello again PF!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I had a question on singular value decomposition. My question relates to a pepper I have been reading, and I'm wondering if any of you would be able to glance over the paper and let me know your thoughts?

The link is here: http://www.ling.ohio-state.edu/~kbaker/pubs/Singular_Value_Decomposition_Tutorial.pdf [Broken]

My question is on page 22. Specifically, how does the author interpret matrix U with respect to the words car, doctor, hospital, wheel, and nurse?

i'm trying to get a good understanding of SVD practically. any help is greatly appreciated!
