A hyponymic relationship can be observed between inimene 'human being' as a


and all the rest of the words analysed, which are all hyponyms of inimene.

Cross-lingual linking indicates complete equivalence, near-equivalence, or equivalence-as-a-hyponym or



To obtain a more relevant and domain specific query, the user's query is enriched using concepts and relations of the domain ontology and WordNet (to find the synonym,


, hyponym of query's keywords).

If the meaning of the word in question is a hyponym of a corresponding


, the latter necessarily functions as an identification or a classification seme of the former.

A glance at the generic denominations will show that culver, which appears as the


in Old English, is now considered rare or archaic.

Two of these categorically determine gender assignment when present: (1) the biological sex of the referent and (2) the...

Hyponymy is a relation of inclusion between a hyponym and a hypernym or superordinate. The hyponym includes the meaning of the hypernym, which is the more general word. Generally, the relationship can be described in the terms Hyponym IS A Hypernym. For example, in the sentence ‘A dog is an animal’, Dog is a hyponym and Animal is a hypernym. In logical terms we may say: If x is an A, then x is a B if A is a hyponym of B.


A hyponymic relation exists between elements of various levels, which form a taxonomy.

Hierarchical taxonomies are semantic networks formed from systems of inclusion (hyponymy). Examples of taxonomies can be found in the natural world or in human artifacts.

In a taxonomy, the relation between hyponym and hypernym is vertical, whereas the relation between taxonomic sisters (terms at the same level of the hierarchy) is horizontal.

A hyponymic relationship is transitive, meaning that a hyponym on a lower level can...

To understand hypernyms and hyponyms, think back to biology class.

Hypernyms and hyponyms are semantic classes of words. The word semantic refers to the meanings of words.

If you want to understand what hyponymy is, then think back to your high school biology class. Maybe you learned about Carl Linnaeus. (I hope so, because he was a pretty big deal.)

Linnaeus is known as the father of taxonomy, which is just a big word for classification.

And that’s all that hyponymy is—classification. If you know that salmon, grouper, and bass are all types of fish, then you can understand the relationship between hyponyms and their hypernym.

Giant disclaimer designed to prevent angry comments from readers: Linnaeus was not a linguist and I’m not claiming that he was. However, I’m referring to his system of classification to make an analogy—that’s all.

Hypernyms are what you can think of as “higher names.” (The prefix hyper– means “over” or “high”...

Windows is not really built with this type of thing in mind, especially for the server side of things. It's a highly distributed system where application developers do not communicate with each other. Software packages do not have a uniform installation mechanism (one of several methods are used) so constructing a universal installation system would be difficult at best. Additionally, most EULAs explicitly prohibit redistribution of software, so a centralized DB is often impossible without violating copyright.

That said:

Microsoft Update. This will check for most MS products. Secunia PSI or CSI. This software will scan your computer for software which is insecure or end-of-lifed. It's not comprehensive, and it doesn't install automatically (some things it will, but it's a little flakey IMX) but it's not bad.

Ultimately, your best bet is to use Microsoft Update to check for OS security issues and patches (second Tuesday of every month is patch day), the hardware...
