This research is a continuation of that reported in Axiomatic Characterization of Synonymy and Antonymy, which was presented at the 1967 International Conference on Computational Linguistics [3]. In that paper on mathematical linguistics the relations of synonymy and antonymy were regarded as ternary relations and their domains and ranges were discussed. Synonymy and antonymy were defined jointly and implicity by a system of eight axioms, which permitted the proofs of several intuitively satisfying theorems. The present paper on computational linguistics is a preliminary report which describes some computer programs that have been used to investigate the extent to which those axioms model an existing dictionary of synonyms and antonyms [9]. A set of computer programs is discussed that (i) ...
