A << synonym >>, << antonym >>, << homonym >>, << related >>, << context >>, and << kind-of >> Dependency makes sense between two Terms only.


Several Dependencies can belong to a Dictionary and can represent the relationship between Terms:

  • << synonym >> relates two Terms which have different names but the same meaning
  • << antonym >> expresses that two Terms have the opposite meaning
  • << homonym >> relates two Terms which have the same name but a different meaning
  • << related >> links two Terms which have some semantic connection, but in a less precise way than << synonym >>
  • << context >> specifies that the meaning of a term is only viable within the context of another term
  • << kind-of >> relates that a term is a specialization or precision of another term


If you have one of these relationships between elements other than Terms, you should remove it.
