Extract candidate points of semantic changes.

floss_extract(.mpac, threshold = 1, exclusion_zone = NULL)



a TSMP object of class ArcCount.


a number. (Default is 1). Set the maximum value for evaluating semantic changes. This is data specific. It is advised to check what is 'normal' for your data.


if a number will be used instead of embedded value. (Default is NULL).


Returns the input .mp object a new name floss with the location of semantic changes and floss_vals with the normalized arc count value of the semantic change positions.
