Summary

The relation definition theory proposed in this paper is explicitly different from previous semantic memory theories since it is the first to make a relation's definition the basis of semantic processing. The paper suggests that this relation definition theory successfully predicts relation similarity on the basis of one key primary assumption: that people perform and comprehend relations by processing some or all of the simple relation elements defining the task relation. The paper concludes by observing that since the relation definition theory makes the logic of relations central, it promises to account for a wider range of relation phenomena than addressed by previous models.
