Almost all language networks in word and syntactic levels are small-world and scale-free. This raises the questions of whether a language network in deeper semantic or cognitive level also has the similar properties. To answer the question, we built up a Chinese semantic network based on a treebank with semantic role (argument structure) annotation and investigated its global statistical properties. The results show that although semantic network is also small-world and scale-free, it is different from syntactic network in hierarchical structure and K-Nearest-Neighbor correlation.
