Are you looking for principles, methods, algorithms or implementations?
principles: syntagmatic and paradigmatic relations
methods: statistical, pattern based, syntactic annotation based
algorithms: ah, many different ;-)
implementations: unfortunately not too many freely available, depends on
what you really need.

As far as I know, Harris introduced the distributional hypothesis. Hearst
was one of those who implemented it.

If you could provide me with more detailed information about your goals,
perhaps I could help you since I am writing a dissertation on that topic

Best regards,
Stefan Bordag
