presentation about hyponyms

  1. 1. UNIVERSIDAD NACIONAL DE CHIMBORAZO  METHODOLOGY 5TH SEMESTER STUDENTS´ NAMES: MIGUEL ERAZO FRANCISCO GONZALEZ
  2. 2. HYPONYMS HYPONYMY IS A LESS FAMILIAR TERM TO MOST PEOPLE THAN EITHER SYNONYMY OR ANTONYMY, BUT IT REFERS TO A MUCH MORE IMPORTANT SENSE RELATION.
  3. 3. HYPONYMS HYPONYMS ARE ITEMS THAT WE USE TO GIVE AN ESPECIFIC EXAMPLE OF A GENERAL CONCEPT
  4. 4. HYPHONYMS  WE CAN TEST FOR HYPONYMY BY REPLACING X AND Y IN THE FRAME 'X IS A KIND OF Y' AND SEEING IF THE RESULT MAKES SENSE. SO WE HAVE 'A HORSE IS A KIND OF ANIMAL' BUT NOT 'AN ANIMAL IS A KIND OF HORSE' AND SO ON."
  5. 5. FRUIT
  6. 6. DOMESTIC ANIMALS
  7. 7. WILD ANIMALS
  8. 8. GEMS
  9. 9. INCLUSION "In general, there are a number of hyponyms for each superordinate. For example, boar and piglet are also hyponyms of the superordinate pig, since the meaning of each of the three words sow, boar, and piglet 'contains' the meaning of the word pig. (Note that in defining a word like sow, boar, or piglet, the superordinate word pig)
  10. 10. CONCLUSION  Thus, it is not surprising that hyponymy is sometimes referred to as inclusion. The superordinate is the included word and the hyponym is the including one."
