Jump to: navigation, search

A Relation is a link between two entities (words) in OmegaWiki. There are two types of relations:

  • A semantic relation, is a relation between two Help:DefinedMeanings and is language-independent.
  • A lexical relation, is a relation between two Help:Syntrans, i.e. two words of a specific language.

Adding a relation in the interface[edit]

TODO: Add a screenshot of how to add relations!!

Semantic relations[edit]

A semantic relation, or DM-DM relation in the OmegaWiki jargon, is a relation between two DefinedMeanings, i.e. between two concepts, independently of a language.

Any concept can use one of the following relations:

  • antonym
  • entailment
  • holonym
  • hypernym
  • hyponym
  • meronym
  • troponym

Class-specific relations[edit]

A DefinedMeaning with a class can use relations that are defined for that class.

Below is a list of class-specific relations.

Language

Lexical relations[edit]

A semantic relation, or Syntrans-Syntrans relation in the OmegaWiki jargon, is a relation between two Syntrans, i.e. between two words of a language attached to a specific meaning.

Some relations are the same for all languages (e.g. "is an abbreviation of") while some relations are available for some languages only (e.g. "British English variant").
