For my request on literature concerning associative structures in
English and German discussions (Linguist 14.2201), I recieved
following answers:

Dr Ghil`ad Zuckermann from Churchill College, University of Cambridge,
hinted his work: Zuckermann, Ghil`ad 2003. Language Contact and
Lexical Enrichment in Israeli Hebrew. London-New York: Palgrave
Macmillan., which was great help.

Jutta Muschard directed me to group-dynamic structures and
socio-psychological papers:

Bion, W.R. 1990: ''Erfahrungen in Gruppen'', Frankfurt. Raoul
Schindler 1973: ''Das Verh´┐Żltnis von Soziometrie und
Rangordnungsdynamik''. In: Heigl/Evers (Hg.), Gruppendynamik, S. 30
ff., which also were good advice.

Last but not least thanks to Svetlana Martinek and her article ''The
role of an associative experiment in revealing of conceptual
structures''. In: Cognitive Linguistics Today. Seies: Lodz Studies in
Language (eds. Barbara Lewandowska-Tomaszczyk and Patrick James
Melia). - Frankfurt/Main: Peter Lang, 2002. - Pp.97-108., which
provided me with excellent data.

Thank you all for your help and generous advice!

Best wishes from Barcelona, especially to Ghil`ad (thanks for the
