corpus_context : CorpusContext
Context manager for a corpus
query : Word
The word whose neighborhood density to calculate.
algorithm : str
The algorithm used to determine distance
max_distance : float, optional
Maximum edit distance from the queried word to consider a word a neighbor
force_quadratic : bool
Force use of the less efficient quadratic algorithm even when finding edit distance of 1 neighborhoods
stop_check : callable, optional
Optional function to check whether to gracefully terminate early
call_back : callable, optional
Optional function to supply progress information during the function
Tuple of the number of neighbors and the set of neighbor Words.
