 neighbourhood Explanation:The concept is "semantic neighbourhood". "Vosinage" apparently is a misprint for "Voisinage" example : "Let X, D be a metric space. If x is any point of X, then we may want to consider all the points of X within a certain distance of x, that is, the set of points of X which are within some degree of nearness to x. Expressed more formally, if X, D is a metric space, x Î X, and p is a positive real number, then the D-p-neighbourhood of x is defined to be the set of all points y of X such that D(x, y) < p; that is, the D-p-neighbourhood of x is defined to be {y Î X | D(x,y) < p}

neighbourhood

Explanation:
The concept is "semantic neighbourhood".

"Vosinage" apparently is a misprint for "Voisinage"
example :
"Let X, D be a metric space. If x is any point of X, then we may want to consider all the points of X within a certain distance of x, that is, the set of points of X which are within some degree of nearness to x. Expressed more formally, if X, D is a metric space, x Î X, and p is a positive real number, then the D-p-neighbourhood of x is defined to be the set of all points y of X such that D(x, y) < p; that is, the D-p-neighbourhood of x is defined to be {y Î X | D(x,y) < p}
