  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose - We should handle these logical relations between concepts in item space rather than Lexeme space. See my comment above. Deryck Chan (talk) 09:36, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support: I don't think we'll have items for every word sense. --Denny (talk) 16:10, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Different language handle concepts a bit differently and as a result it can be useful to specifically link words within a given language. ChristianKl❫ 17:17, 6 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support While I oppose the #meronym relation, since I believe it is better modeled as a part-of relation between items, I support this one, since there can be subtle differences between the translations of a sense, which can be made explicit using the hyponym relationship (among other things). I agree with Denny that this relationship is useful for senses for which we don't have items, while I don't see how the meronym relationship would be useful for senses that do not denote items. -- Duesentrieb (talk) 11:58, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Marked as on hold pending new data type. Dhx1 (talk) 12:46, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
    • I removed "on hold" as this can benefit from further discussion and wasn't reviewed by an administrator/property creator. --- Jura 08:12, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
