    1. Nevertheless, co-hyponyms are not necessarily incompatible in all senses. A queen and mother are both hyponyms of woman but there is nothing preventing the queen from being a mother.

      not necessarily incompatible in all senses.

      so is this only a concern/possibility when the word in question is a polyseme?

      but there is nothing preventing the queen from being a mother

      The meaning of the "incompatibility" relation seems really ambiguous. What does that mean precisely?

      And how would we know for sure if an incompatibility (such as a peach is not a plum) or lack of incompatibility (a queen can be a mother and a mother can be a queen) is a sufficient condition to cause it to be or not be a co-hyponym?

      Oh. I guess it says

      Co-hyponyms are often but not always related to one another by the relation of incompatibility.

      so it actually can't ever be used to prove or disprove (sufficient/necessary condition) that something is a co-hyponym. So that observation, while interesting, is not helpful in a practical / deterministic way...

    2. Should mention/define all the possible subtypes of hyponym relationships, including

      direct hyponym direct hypernym

    3. A hyponym is a word or phrase whose semantic field is more specific than its hypernym.
    4. A hyponym refers to a type. A meronym refers to a part. For example, a hyponym of tree is pine tree or oak tree (a type of tree), but a meronym of tree is bark or leaf (a part of tree).
    1. A word with multiple senses is likely to havemultiple, distinct tokens that can accurately be described as the direct hypernym for one or more ofits senses
    1. indirect hypernymy (i.e., any entailment) is included in hypernymy and indirect hyponymy is included in hyponymy

      first sighting of: entailment, or at least the use of it generally, in order to mean indirect descendants/ancestors

    2. In coordpairs, a co-hyponym relationship is labelled 1 whereas other realtionships (direct hyponymy and direct hypernymy) are labelled 0.
    1. Taxonomies are often represented as is-a hierarchies where each level is more specific (in mathematical language "a subset of") the level above it. For example, a basic biology taxonomy would have concepts such as mammal, which is a subset of animal, and dogs and cats, which are subsets of mammal. This kind of taxonomy is called an is-a model because the specific objects are considered as instances of a concept. For example, Fido is-an instance of the concept dog and Fluffy is-a cat.
    1. Semantics: deals with the formal properties and interrelation of signs and symbols, without regard to meaning.

      Is a branch (of a field/discipline) considered a hyponym??

    1. Co-hyponyms are labelled as such when separate hyponyms share the same hypernym but are not hyponyms of one another, unless they happen to be synonymous
    2. first sighting: hyponym, hypernym
