BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • Holonymy is a semantic relation. Holonymy defines the relationship between a term denoting the whole and a term denoting a part of, or a member of, the whole. That is,
    'X' is a holonym of 'Y' if Ys are parts of Xs, or
    'X' is a holonym of 'Y' if Ys are members of Xs.
    For example, 'tree' is a holonym of 'bark', of 'trunk' and of 'limb.'
