My R package LSAfun is available at CRAN
This package contains a collection of useful standard functions for working with semantic spaces (for example Latent Semantic Analysis, LSA). The R manual is available here. A more detailed manual with instructions as well as some theoretical background is available in the following article:
The LSAfun package is not designed for creating semantic spaces. To create semantic spaces (from small corpora) in R, use the package lsa.
These packages create word2vec embeddings in R using only one line of code, and run decently fast also on local machines!
Alternatively, there are many pre-built semantic spaces publicly available! Check out the Semantic Spaces repository provided on this page.
