Summary/Abstract: The article proposes a description of the semantics and properties of the main semantic relation – hypernymy, between noun synonym sets in Wordnet (lexical-semantic network in which words are linked with the semantic relations between concepts to which they refer). The relation instance hypernymy is also presented, connecting proper noun synonym sets and synonym sets denoting classes, which describe a given named object. In this article the multiple hypernymy cases are analysed. Based on the hypothesis that one synonym set cannot be related to more than one hypernym, other semantic relations are defined in the scope of multiple hypernymy: origin, form and function, as well as the relation true hypernymy. Tests for the identification of new relations are presented together with some examples. The overall conclusion is that multiple hypernymy embraces several semantic relations which, in turn, are only partially shown within the Wordnet structure.
