The meaning of most words and al morphemes is conventional; that is;
speakers of a language implicitly agree on their meaning.

Metonym is always employed by the news services.  om ii no komoyon do ‘semantic features’. (mantad ponoriukan do puru linguistik.  Decomposing the meanings of words into semantic features can clarify how  certain words relate to other words. Homonyms. unmarked (relational opposites). Sokiro do haro boros dii au tokou oilaan rati.(homophones) same sound. 13. id nombo do ii nopo nga kakamot id pomogunan di ‘otopot’/real that it refers to). Semantic features are thought to be the conceptual elements by which a  person understands the meanings of words and sentence. Semantic properties are not directly observable and their existence must be inferred from linguistic evidence. Sinonim. Pionitan Leksikal. 11. 12. 10. Teori do rati.  The words that describe the relation often end in the bound morpheme –    nym. (the semantic features interact with different aspects of grammar such as the morphology or syntax.  Sense. Thus. Hyponyms  the relationship is between the more general term such as color and more specific instances of it such as red. rati nopo do boros nga ii rujukan dau. The meaning in the most sentences must be constructed by the application of semantic rules. Semantic features and grammars. miagal ko’ ‘the assassin killed Thwacklehurst”. pieces of information that the speakers of a  language agree. same or not same spelling but  different meaning.

Metonyms need not be a single word. . Polysemous  a word that has multiple meanings that are related  conceptually or historically.  intended utterance and  actual utterance (actual).  properties that are part of word meanings and that reflect our intuitions about what words mean.
