[Corpora-List] Geometrical representation of NL phrases for similarity comparison

I wonder if it is possible to represent NL phrases geometrically, for example, to compare their similarity. For example, the phrase "Hey man, that chick *is such a catch!*" and more formal "..., this girl is pretty!" should be represented geometrically nearby because they are semantically similar.

I am aware of LSA vectors that represent particular words and similarity could be evaluated as a distance between these word vectors in the LSA space. However, the LSA approach only works for individual words and no phrases and it is IMHO too numerical because it doesn't consider semantics of participating words.
