Essay / Research Paper Abstract
This 12 page paper presents a detailed explanation
of semantic networks; history, examples and uses
are also included. Semantic networks are "brain-
like." They allow new knowledge to be deduced.
Their operative vocabulary includes the phrase node
which equals the idea or concept being examined,
and link which will be indicating the relationship of the concepts to each other.

Unformatted sample text from the term paper:
you ever been in an argument with someone, and just at the point where you may think that you are making headway, the other person says, "its just all semantics,"
which is a nice way of letting you know, that the other person just thinks you are quibbling about the meaning of words. Yet, semantics is really the study
of meanings in language. At least it once was as simple as that. Now we might say that semantics, through its network form, has joined the information highway,
and is indeed speeding along it. However in the most primitive definition, semantic networks are "brain like." They allow new knowledge to be deduced. Their operative vocabulary
includes the phrase node which equals the idea or concept being examined and link which will be indicating the relationship of the concepts to each other (www.mcs.vuw.ac.nz). In other words,
we might say that semantic networks, like other networks in general, consist of nodes with links between them. The nodes in a semantic network represent concepts. A concept is
an abstract class, or set, whose members are things in the real world that are grouped together because they share common features or properties. The "things" are called instances of
the concept (see included example). Concepts may also have subclasses. Since a concept represents a set of instances, a subclass is another concept that represents a subset of those instances.
Subclasses are less broadly defined than their superclasses because, in addition to the properties that their instances share by belonging to the superclass, they must share the properties that define
membership in the subclass. The fact that one concept is a subclass of another is denoted by linking them with a #Superclass relation. The #Subclass relation is the converse of
