As yet, no.

There is, however, an active project going to implement LDA.  This will give
you "semantic" representations for words which could then be clustered.  We
do have several clustering algorithms that would be entirely sufficient for
that step.

It would be a very interesting addition to have some other language modeling
implementation as well.  The one that I would find interesting would be
something like a center embedded neural model such as was used in this
article by Ronan
I would be very willing to advise on the implementation of such a beast, but
due to my normal level of over-commitment could only provide minimal direct
code contributions.
