Conditions for the creation of junction relationships
Junctions weave relationships between phrases, phrase roles, or words.
A junction relationship between junctions can be created. Junction is recursive.
The junction can take place:
- within the same phrase inside the same role and after the same role auxiliary
- within the same phrase between identical roles but with different auxiliary
- between two or more phrases that would be independent if they were not linked by a junction.
The different types of junction relationships
Junctions may have different mathematical properties:
- an order relationship (asymmetrical and transitive), like most junctions
- an equivalence relationship (symmetrical and transitive)
- a symmetrical and non-transitive relationship such as similar to, different from…
- an a-symmetrical and non-transitive relation
- a logical connection: AND, inclusive OR, exclusive XOR
In short, junction operators organize order relations, except for the logical connectors E:M:.-k.u.-‘ and the formal comparisons E:.-S:M:.a.-k.u.-‘ (equivalent to, similar to, different from) which are commutative and organize bi-directional relationships.
Logical connectors and formal comparisons unite categories into sets while other junctions unite categories into sequences.
The following is a list of junction paradigms:
- E:M:.-k.u.-’ logical connectors : and, or…
- E:.-O:O:.-k.u.-’ causal junctions : therefore, because…
- E:.-O:M:.-k.u.-‘ the junctions for placing an item in a list. Relation item-list: best, worst, minimum, maximum…
- E:.-M:M:.u.-k.u.-‘ antinomies, contrasts and explanations: but, however, on the other hand…
- E:.-M:M:.a.-k.u.-‘ comparisons: less than, more than, equal to, similar to, different from…
- E:.-S:.m.-l.-‘O:O:.-‘k.u.-‘ path and order junctions: whole-part path, step order, priority order, temporal order…
